    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!
