Most of the time when you hear potato salad you think of creamy thick mayonnaise. Mike hates any mayonnaise based salad and won't go near it! Since we've been together {2002} I feel it's been my mission to make him love every possible food and I've been pretty successful. He now eats beans, mushrooms, hummus, veggie pizza, grilled salad, chili, vinegar, mustard, coffee, tea and beer. But there's really no getting past mayonnaise and I can't blame him because I don't even like mayonnaise all that much. But he told me he hated potato salad and that is something I can change because not all potato salads have to be mayonnaise based or creamy. 
Have you ever had a German Potato Salad? It's vinegar based and has bacon, right there....the word 'bacon,' is a sealed deal for almost everyone I know! 
This salad is a little sweet and takes a different spin on potato salad, but it's been a winner with so many. 

German Potato Salad
Recipe courtesy of All Recipes
3 cups Potatoes, diced
5 slices Bacon, diced
1 small Onion, diced
1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
3 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Water 
1-1/2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
Fresh Parsley, chopped

Bring potatoes to a boil and cook for 10 minutes or until done. The smaller the dice the quicker they cook. 

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a pan. Once done, remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Do not drain grease from pan. 

Add onion to bacon pan and cook until golden. Add vinegar, mustard, sugar, water, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes to liquid mixture and toss until well coated. Remove from heat and add bacon and parsley. Serve warm or cold.
