Ingredients
  All purpose potatoes 4 Medium
  Lean bacon slice 1
  Yellow onion 1 Small, chopped
  Green pepper 1 Medium, cored, seeded, and chopped fine
  Stalk celery 1 Medium, chopped
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Cider vinegar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Flour 2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Hard cooked egg white 2 Large, chopped
  Minced parsley 2 Tablespoon
Directions

Place the potatoes in a medium size heavy saucepan, add enough unsalted water to cover, and bring to a boil over moderately high heat.
Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a heavy 7 inch skillet over moderate heat until crisp and brown 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove the bacon and drain on a paper towel; cool, then crumble and set aside.
When the potatoes are done, drain them and let them stand until cool enough to handle.
Peel the potatoes, cut into 3/4 inch cubes, and place in a large bowl.
Add the onion, green pepper, and celery and set aside.
In a small heavy saucepan, combine the water, vinegar, sugar, flour, and black pepper; set over moderate heat and whisk until the mixture just comes to a boil 2 to 3 minutes.
Pour the hot dressing over the salad and toss well.
Cool to room temperature, then sprinkle with the reserved bacon, the chopped egg whites, and the minced parsley.
