Picnic Coleslaw

 Picnic Coleslaw
I usually prepare this distinctive, colorful coleslaw for picnics, block parties and potlucks. No matter where I take this tasty dish, people are always asking for the recipe. The bacon adds rich flavor to the fresh crisp carrots and cabbage. Plus, it travels well. —Karen Page, St. Louis, Missouri
