Legendary actress Doris Day "has never been one for celebrating her own birthday" (at least according to her publicist). But that doesn't mean we can't

6 medium-sized potatoes
1 large stalk of celery, chopped into small pieces
3-4 scallions (white part only), thinly sliced
4 slices lean bacon, cut in small strips
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup cider (or wine) vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
HOW TO MAKE:
Cook potatoes in their skins until tender. Cool slightly, peel, and slice into a large bowl. Add celery and scallions. Fry bacon in a saucepan until crisp. Add water and vinegar. Pour over potato-celery-scallion mixture, toss lightly. Cover and marinate thoroughly (several hours or overnight) before serving. Serves 4.
Day also included a final thought: "For a more sour dressing, add more vinegar to the marinade."
