Ingredients

  • 6 potatoes

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder

  • 1 teaspoon water

  • 4 slices bacon

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup water

  • ½ cup cider vinegar

  • 1 cup diced celery, divided

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool.

  2. Mix dry mustard with 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl and let stand 10 minutes to develop flavor.

  3. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels. Reserve bacon drippings in skillet. Let bacon cool; crumble bacon.

  4. Cook onion in reserved bacon drippings over medium heat until onion is translucent and soft, about 5 minutes. Stir mustard paste, sugar, 1/4 cup water, and cider vinegar into onion; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer vinegar dressing for 2 minutes.

  5. Peel potatoes if desired; slice 3 potatoes into a salad bow and arrange into a layer. Sprinkle potatoes with half the crumbled bacon, celery, and parsley; season with salt and black pepper. Pour a little of the vinegar dressing over the layer. Repeat layer with remaining 3 potatoes, bacon, celery, parsley, salt, and black pepper; pour remaining dressing over the salad. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

Use sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda(R) in place of sugar if desired.
