This warm German potato salad recipe is packed with flavor and texture. Bacon adds salty richness, while the vinegar and a bit of sugar help to balance and brighten the flavor.
Red potatoes can vary in size quite a bit. When you’re cutting them, aim for bite sized pieces, around 1 to 1 1/2 inches.
You can substitute regular Dijon or German mustard if you don't want to purchase the whole grain version. However, whole grain mustard adds to the beautiful presentation and also offers a subtle crunch. I think it's worth it, and it's fantastic on sandwiches, so it won't go to waste!
Some recipes include diced celery, which would certainly work here. It will add some additional texture and a touch of bitterness. I personally don't think the recipe needs it. However, if you want to add some, I'd dice 2 ribs finely and stir them in along with the parsley.
German potato pairs well with meat. Try serving this pasta salad alongside buttermilk roast chicken
, crispy baked chicken thighs
, or grilled steak
