Pennsylvania Dutch Potato Salad

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Leigh Ann Ross

Try this Pennsylvania Dutch Potato Salad for something different; the dressing's bacon drippings barely temper the sweet-tart notes from sugar, cider vinegar, and white vinegar. We halved the amount of bacon and bacon grease to cut calories and saturated fat, so a few slices of flavorful applewood-smoked bacon stand in to extend flavor. Serve warm or slightly cooled.
