  • 1 Lb. Nibbles Small Potatoes
  • ½ Lb. Turkey Bacon Or bacon of your choice
  • Cup Red Onions Diced
  • Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
  • ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil Plus 1 teaspoon to cook the bacon
  • 1 Tsp. Kosher Salt Or to taste
  • 1 Tsp. Ground Black Pepper Or to taste
  • ¼ Cup Fresh Parsley Chopped


  • Scrub and wash the potatoes. Slice the potatoes in half. Place the potatoes in a large pot with cold water, covering the top. Bring to a boil and add 1 teaspoon of salt. I used kosher salt. Reduce the heat to medium – high and cook until tender and fork through. Should take about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, dice the onions and bacon. Set aside. In a heated skillet, cook the bacon in 1 teaspoon oil; stirring occasionally to avoid burning until crispy.
  • Cook the bacon until crispy. Set aside about ⅓ cup. Then add the diced onions. Stir and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the vinegar slowly. Then season with salt and pepper. Stir. Bring to a quick boil.
  • By this time the potatoes should be cooked. Drain and potatoes and transfer to a serving bowl. Remove the skillet from the burner and pour the vinegar and onions mixture over the potatoes.
  • Add the Dijon mustard, parsley, and oil. Carefully fold in the cooked bacon pieces. When ready to serve, topped with remaining chopped crispy bacon. Serve hot or warm.
