As a German, let me suggest to leave out the bacon. Way too much in grease and nitrites! Although some German recipes for potato salad call for some diced bacon as a garnish, this does not mean fried American bacon strips, as they do not exist in Germany. German bacon is more like Canadian bacon or smoked ham. Also, cut down on the sugar, 1/4 teaspoon is plenty. Finally, one of the ingredients is missing (3rd item, entitled "less").
