Fingerling Idaho® potatoes in a medley of red, gold and purple add a pop of color and a twist on this German-style potato salad. 



  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add salt. 
  2. Once boiling, add potatoes and cook until tender, approximately 20 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool. 
  3. In a separate pan, cook bacon until crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels, saving some of the grease for later in the recipe.
  4. In a metal bowl, mix together dressing ingredients: cider vinegar, honey, extra virgin olive oil, reserved bacon grease, both sugars, granulated garlic, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. 
  5. Cut cooled potatoes into ½" thick rounds and place in a bowl with red onions and bacon. 
  6. Toss with just enough dressing to coat (you might have extra) and serve.
