2 tbsp quick cooking tapioca
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp pepper
6 slices bacon, crisp cooked, drained, and crumbled

1. In a 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker combine potatoes and onion. In a bowl combine water, vinegar, sugar, tapioca, salt, celery seed, and pepper; pour over potatoes.

2. Cover; cook on low heat setting for 8 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Stir in bacon.


Well everyone, it took 127 days to get here but here is the FIRST one star dish! Seriously. It was gross. I hated every bite. I made it for a church potluck and I brought it in sneekily so no one would see that I brought this disgusting potato salad. At the end of the dinner most every dish was eaten. There was, however, a good portion of this salad left. That just goes to show, it truly was disgusting. My baby ate it though. But he is used to baby food...and if you have ever eaten baby food you know how tasteless and disgusting it is. So all in all, DON'T try this dish (just in case you were still thinking you would make it).
