German-style potato salad

Preparation time: 5 minutes once potatoes are cool to touch
Cooking time: 15–20 minutes

2 pounds small red potatoes
3 tablespoons imitation bacon bits
2/3 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
2 packets of Splenda (or other artificial sweetener)
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/2 cup chopped parsley

Leave skins on potatoes. Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and add enough cool water to cover them by at least an inch of water. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes can be pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool. Quarter the potatoes when cool enough to touch. Combine bacon bits, salad dressing, Splenda, vinegar, and parsley in a medium-size bowl. Toss potato pieces in bowl with dressing to coat. Serve warm or chilled.
