Apple Bacon Coleslaw

I love coleslaw.  It is a must with fried chicken or pulled pork.  This recipe is over the top because it has bacon in it and pears wonderful with the apples and cabbage.  Give it a try the next time you make a slaw.  

¼ cup cider vinegar
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons Kosher salt
¼ cup pulp free orange juice
Juice from a half of fresh lemon
1 teaspoon pepper
Mustard seed (optional)
1 medium cabbage, cored, shredded
6 slices of bacon fried crispy
1 small bunch green onions
1/2 cup finely minced parsley leaves (optional)
4 firm apples, peeled, cored and shredded

Mix the first 8 ingredients for the dressing in a large bowl.

Shred the cabbage and apples.  Chop scallions and parsley.

Fry bacon crispy and chop in small pieces.

Add all the other ingredients to the dressing and toss well.  Let it sit in the refrigerator over night.  This allows the liquids to bleed out of the cabbage and apples into the slaw making a moister salad.

I got jalapenos at the store yesterday and am going to make a recipe for jalapeno jam I have never tried before today. It calls for bacon also.   I'll share it tomorrow if it turns out well.  I can see already, I'm going to make some changes.  

Going to be another frigid day here.  Stay warm and happy.  May God bless you and yours.
