Creamy BLT Coleslaw
- In a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Crumble bacon; set aside.
- In a large bowl combine the reserved drippings, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and celery seeds. Add cabbage, carrots, sunflower kernels, tomatoes, and green onions; toss gently to coat. Stir in crumbled bacon. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer coleslaw to a bowl or storage container; cover and chill overnight.
- Serve within 2 hours after removing coleslaw from refrigerator; discard any leftovers.
From the Test Kitchen
If desired, substitute 5 cups packaged shredded cabbage with carrot (coleslaw mix) for the cabbage or shredded broccoli and the carrots.

I made this a few weeks ago once I received it in an issue of the magazine. My family & I thought it was delicious. I am making it tonight for a Barbque we are having and the only change I am making to this recipe is to use double the strips of bacon because you can never have too much bacon!!!
