Amish Hot Bacon Slaw

This is a kind of hot slaw we like to have with barbecue among other things  It’s commonly served at restaurants here in Ohio.

It’s a bit like a cross between braised cabbage and the flavor of a wilted salad with all the goodness of coleslaw.

Being a warm slaw, it is perfect for wintertime grilling/smoking or if you do BBQ in the oven or crock pot. This has a nice crunchy texture, although not quite as crisp as regular coleslaw.

But  it does have a  great sweet and sour flavor I adore. I am  sure you will love it as well.
