Meal: Salads-Sandwiches

Serves: 4-6

Difficulty: Moderate


  • 2 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1/2 lbs. Bacon cut in ¼ inch strips
  • 3/4 C Onion minced
  • 1/3 C Apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 C Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 2 4 oz. Chavrie® Goat Log

  1. Place the potatoes in a medium-size pot and cover them with enough water to extend 2 inches above the surface of the potatoes. Salt the water and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and dice into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. Set aside in a warm place.
  3. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once crisp, place on a paper towel-lined plate
  4. Pour off the rendered fat, reserving 1/4 cup in the pan.
  5. Turn the heat to medium and add the onion. Cook until translucent about 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Whisk in the vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt and stir until thick and bubbly. Add the diced, cooked potatoes and toss to coat.
  7. Top with crumbled Chavrie® Goat Log, bacon and garnish with the chives.
  8. Serve warm.
