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.
