Place potatoes in a large pot of salted water over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until fork-tender, 25 to 35 minutes. Drain potatoes and peel while they are as hot as you can handle. Cut one-third of them into 1/2-inch-thick slices directly into a large resealable food storage container. Drizzle one-third of the oil over them, then one-third of the vinegar. Top the potatoes with one-third each of the onions, salt, pepper and parsley, in that order. Repeat the process twice. Sprinkle the salad with the paprika.
Cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate overnight or longer.
Turn the container over several times to allow the potatoes to absorb the juices. Before serving, bring the potato salad to room temperature.
Place the potatoes in a large cooking pot with enough salted water to cover them. Bring to a a boil, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 25-30 minutes. Drain and cool slightly. Peel the potatoes while they are still warm; slice them about 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle the sliced potatoes with 2 tablespoons of vinegar, cover and keep warm.
In a heavy skillet or microwave cook the bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels. Pour bacon fat into a measuring cup and add enough vegetable oil to total 1/4 cup of fat. Pour the fat into a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for 1 minute, stirring.
Combine the remaining 1/3 cup of vinegar, the water, sugar, and dry mustard. Add to skillet with the onion and celery. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then stir in the Dijon mustard.
Pour over the hot potatoes, add the dill and reserved bacon and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving to allow flavors to blend.
