    Great recipe! I did not modify it, except for using stevia instead of sugar. I will definitely make it again.

    I made a half recipe. Other than some personal mistakes (burned bacon, overcooked potatoes), i thought it turned out well. A little sweeter than I expected. Next time I'll just a bit more vinager. We enjoyed it, and will do it again.

    GREAT We all loved it. I made one change, I added 1/2 white onion that was sautéed in the bacon grease.

    I make this all the time! I omit the sugar & pepper, and use whole grain Dijon mustard (Trader Joe's.) I also increase the vinegar a little bit, because I love the tart taste. With the real bacon prepared pieces (from Costco) this recipe takes no time at all to prepare, and might be fewer calories - bonus! Red potatoes are good for you and reasonable calories. German potato salad is the best!! Thank you for this yummy recipe.

    It turned out really tasty, there weren't any leftovers because my family just ate it up. This recipe is a keeper!
