Bacon Cashew Slaw

Bacon Cashew Coleslaw

One of the most requested of my dishes for parties and pot-lucks is this Cole Slaw.  It is simple to make and simply a must for any BBQ.  Give it a try.  Remember to keep the bacon and cashews out of the slaw until you’re ready to serve it unless you like your bacon crumbles soft.

1 lb of cabbage (your favorite kinds)

1/2 cup mayo

2 tbsp cider vinegar

1 tsp dijon mustard

3 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp half & half

1 tsp celery seed (optional)

freshly ground pepper to taste

1 cup unsalted cashews

6 rashers of bacon, crispy and crumbled

Shred the cabbage.  Set aside.

Combine the mayo, vinegar, mustard, sugar, celery seed, pepper and half & half.  Mix until well blended.

Pour over the shredded cabbage and mix well.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

One hour before serving, add the bacon and cashews and toss.
