6 Slices of bacon
2 tb Cornstarch
1/4 c Water
1 c Chopped onion
3/4 c Diced celery
2 ts Salt
1 ts Granulated sugar
1/8 ts Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c Cider vinegar
6 c Red-skinned potatoes
6 ea Large pimento-stuffed green olives

Potatoes should be firm, cooked, peeled, diced and still hot. Fry bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove the bacon, drain on paper towels, then crumble; reserving the bacon fat. Dissolve cornstarch in water. Saute onion and celery in the reserved bacon fat over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add salt, sugar, pepper and dissolved cornstarch to the skillet. Next, add vinegar and bring to a boil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the hot potatoes and crumbled bacon, stirring gently. Serve hot, garnished with the sliced stuffed olives.
