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

"Simple, straightforward, quick, and the addition of bacon makes it a hands-down winner! For our family of 4, I just used a bag of pre-shredded cole slaw mix with carrots already mixed in. Will absolutely make this again and again!"

"you dont have to worry about the mayo spoiling at a cook out. It was the best coleslaw. I like to top it off with a bit of shredded cheese"

"Great Cole slaw and easy! I made it for a party and everyone loved it. I used prepackaged cabbage for slaw but that's the only change I made!"
