1-1/2 pounds red potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks

2 large scallions, sliced

1/4 cup cider vinegar

In 2-quart saucepan, cover potatoes with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are just tender. Drain and set potatoes aside.

Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain. Discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings from skillet; over medium heat, add potatoes, pickles, scallions, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned and mixture is heated through, stirring frequently. Add drained bacon and blend well.
