Serve this tangy vinegar-based potato salad with bratwurst and sauerkraut for a meal worthy of a German beer garden.


  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, well scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried dillweed
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill or fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley


  1. In a large saucepan, cover potatoes in lightly salted water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes or just until tender; drain well. Rinse with cold water; cool slightly. Halve and cut potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick slices; place in a large bowl. Drizzle warm potatoes with vinegar and season with the salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. For dressing: In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove skillet from heat. Add onion, broth, oil, sugar, dillweed and celery seeds to bacon and drippings; stir well to combine. Pour dressing over potatoes; gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with fresh dill. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
