This is a fabulous wilted bacon cabbage slaw with a beautiful, bright color that is really delicious. (You can use green but the color isn't as vibrant, obviously.) Even our 3 year old loved it! And it is super easy with (probably) things you'd have in your kitchen. Easy and wonderful presentation AND delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place the cabbage in a large/wide heatproof serving bowl. It makes it easier to toss all the shredded cabbage.
  2. In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat for 5 minutes or until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain, then toss with the cabbage.
  3. Discard all but around 3 tablespoons of the fat from the skillet. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes or until soft. Sprinkle the sugar over the top and cook 2 minutes longer or until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the vinegar and bring to a boil.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch with the water until smooth. Stir this mixture in to the skillet along with the salt and pepper. Return to a boil and cook 1 minute longer. Pour the mixture over the cabbage and toss well.
  5. Cabbage should have a bright magenta color.
