Boil potatoes (with or without peels) in salted water 15 to 20 minutes. Don't let them get too soft--a fork should go in but the potatoes should not fall apart. Fry bacon and crumble into small pieces. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat. Cook white onion in the bacon fat until lightly brown. Thickly slice the slightly cooled potatoes. In a large bowl, combine bacon, white onion, oil, mustard and vinegar. Gently toss in potatoes and green onions. Season with parsley, salt and pepper. Heat sausages and sauerkraut according to package directions and serve with potato salad and extra mustard.
