Many years ago, someone in the family collected recipes from descendants of my great grandparents, William M. and Florence E. (Snodgrass) Whaley and had them compiled into a cookbook. I am posting those recipes here so that they will not be lost. This recipe was submitted by my Aunt Nancy and Uncle Jay.

How to Make Aunt Nancy's German Potato Salad


  1. Boil potatoes in jackets until done and let cool.
  2. Peel potatoes and slice real thin.
  3. While peeling and slicing potatoes, cook bacon and brown really well.
  4. Slice potatoes and onion into a large bowl; pour in vinegar and sprinkle with chives, just enough for a little color.
  5. While bacon is still hot, pour over mixture (both meat and grease). Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. This is good for picnics because it really lasts a long time without refrigeration.
