Yields: 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 40 mins


  • 900 g

    baby potatoes, halved

  • 6

    slices bacon

  • 1

    red onion, finely chopped

  • 60 mL

    apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tbsp.


  • 1 tbsp.

    extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp.

    dijon mustard

  • 1/2 tsp.

    granulated sugar

  • Salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 8

    Spring onions, sliced


  1. In a large pot, cover potatoes with water and season generously with salt. Bring water to a boil and cook until potatoes are easily pierced with a knife, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly before transferring to a large serving bowl.
  2. In a large pan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy, about 8 minutes. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of fat in pan, and transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  3. Add red onion and cook over medium heat until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Whisk in in apple cider vinegar, water, olive oil, dijon mustard, and sugar. Bring mixture to a simmer, then turn off heat and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir in spring onions and gradually pour mixture over potatoes.
  5. Toss to combine and serve warm.
