“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


  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.
