I generally a fan of cole slaw despite the fact that the mayonnaise makes it a little less healthy option for consuming cabbage. I will definitely be a fan of this recipe for slaw that doesn’t require mayonnaise, a win, right? Well, it may not have mayonnaise, but it does have bacon which probably drops it right down to a category of bad equal to that of mayonnaise. Alas, what is one to do. But for all of you bacon lovers out there, here’s another option for you.
Cook six (6) slices of thick-cut bacon in 1 Tablespoon of olive oil; drain the bacon and crumble. To the bacon drippings: add 1/2 sliced red onion, 1/4 cup each of the cider vinegar and the water, 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of celery seeds. Mix well then toss with six (6) cups of shredded cabbage; add the bacon and toss. Enjoy!
