This is a very easy slaw to make. It is hand cut with a sharp knife which gives it a texture that you can't get with grated cabbage. It stays crisp longer, and it is the perfect side dish for a get together or BBQ because everyone loves it. Enjoy! The photo is my own, and so is this humble recipe.

How To Make bonnie's sliced slaw with bacon

  • 1
    Slice the cabbage very thin with a sharp knife. You will catch on to the technique as you slice. Discard the white core, using the green part of the cabbage as much as possible. Chop all the vegetables and add to the cabbage, then add the dressing, and gently mix until the cabbage is covered. Refrigerate for 4 or 5 hours before serving. Just before serving, add the crisp bacon crumbles and toss. Enjoy!
