Cook Potatoes

  • Place unpeeled potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, add a dash of salt, and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
  • Drain, peel, and slice the warm potatoes and place the potatoes in a serving dish.

Warm Potato Salad Dressing (do this while the potatoes are cooking)

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet and fry the bacon. Add diced onions and continue to saute until the onions are translucent and the bacon turns crispy.
  • Stir in mustard and sugar. Deglaze with white wine vinegar and beef broth. Simmer for a couple of minutes. Add fresh chives and parsley.

Potato Salad Assembly

  • Pour the warm bacon dressing over the sliced warm potatoes. Serve and enjoy.
