Crispy Creamy Cabbage Salad With Bacon German Style

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by sonnyu28

This is a creamy crunchy cabbage salad my family in Germany makes. I used half and half in this recipe but it also tastes very yummy with cream. I have also made the salad with evaporated milk before. I prefer a subtle bacon flavor, therefore I use oil instead of the bacon drippings but you can substitute these if you like.

Wonderful! It's almost like a cole slaw with bacon. I chopped my cabbage fairly small. My herbs were a combination of fresh parlsley, cilantro and tarragon. I felt that was a great combination. I just added some chopped onion to suit my personal taste. Thanx for sharing!
