In the kitchen with Kelley: Apple Bacon Coleslaw

Ever since I was a child, I’ve loved coleslaw. Unfortunately, my children weren’t coleslaw fans. So I didn’t get to eat it very often. Then I found this recipe, fixed it one night and converted my children.

Apples, bacon… what’s not to love? Now, we all love coleslaw.

This particular coleslaw is made with apple cider vinegar, which may help with diabetes and blood sugar control.

Apple Bacon Coleslaw


1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup soy yogurt
3/8 cup honey
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 head of cabbage, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 medium Fuji or granny smith apple, chopped
1/3 cup almonds, chopped
5 pieces bacon, chopped


1. In a small bowl, whisk together apple cider vinegar, yogurt, honey, sea salt, pepper and lemon juice to make dressing.
2. In a large bowl, mix cabbage, onion and apple.
3. Pour dressing over cabbage mix, and let sit in the refrigerator for an hour or more (overnight is best, if possible).
4. Sprinkle with bacon and almonds before serving.
