Slice the potatoes into ? inch slices and place into a bowl of cold water. Once you are finished with slicing the potatoes, place the bowl in the sink and run cold water over the potatoes to remove excess starch and any remaining debris. You can store the potatoes in cold water for several hours or days before cooking.
Cook the bacon slices until they are crispy, and then drain the grease over of them by blotting with paper towels. Chop the bacon into ? inch thick pieces, which kept for hours or even days.
Place the olive oil and cider vinegar into a mixing bowl or food processor and incorporate well. Add ? of the brown sugar and mix it well, then add the remaining half of brown sugar and all of the black pepper and continue to mix until it the brown sugar is dissolved in the liquid mixture.

Drain the potatoes in a colander and rinse with cold water. Please the potatoes into a steamer and steam them until they are tender, usually 35 - 45 minutes.
Once the potatoes are done, place them into a large mixing bowl and then add the dressing and sliced red onions to the bowl.

Take 3/4s of the bacon and green onions and add it to the mixing bowl and gently mix these ingredients into the potato/dressing/onion mixture. Transfer this mixture to a serving bowl and top with the remaining bacon and green onions.
Grind some black pepper over the top of the bowl and serve immediately.
(I cook with little to no salt added to my recipes for health reasons, but feel free to add it as you desire. You can always add salt at the table, but you cannot take it away!)
