Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the grill to high. Place potatoes in a large pot with the onion and cover with cold water. Cook, on the grates of the grill, or on a burner, until tender. Drain, discard the onion, and cut the potatoes into cubes when cool enough to handle. Place the potatoes in a large bowl and cover to keep warm.

Place a large saute pan on the grates of the grill. Add the bacon and cook until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Add the onions to the rendered bacon fat and cook until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully add the vinegar and mustard seeds and cook for 2 more minutes. Whisk in the canola oil and season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Add the hot dressing to the potatoes and toss gently to coat. Fold in the green onions and parsley. Season again with salt and pepper, to taste.

Too much vinegar. That's all you can taste! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really loved this recipe, except for the bacon. Although it was nice and crispy, my family preferred the salad without the bacon. Call it tradition, I guess. However, everyone said that the salad was very good and it went fast. Thanks, Bobby. Maxine B. item not reviewed by moderator and published
