Nutty Bacon Coleslaw

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by C Chatwin

I never cared for cole slaw or peanuts until now. This cole slaw gets great flavor from crispy bacon and incredible crunchy texture from chopped peanuts. It always gets rave reviews at pot lucks and picnics!

Yum! I love coleslaw, but I usually stick with the Asian style ones with vinegar based dressing. This has changed all of that. It was really really good. I made half a batch since it was just two of us and we finished it all! That is really saying a lot considering my BH nevr even touches the stuff. The only change I made was that I used honey roasted peanut since that is what I had on hand. Delicious!
