Warm Red Cabbage Bacon Salad

Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Number of servings: 4


    • 3 slices reduced-fat turkey bacon
    • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1/2 large onion, peeled and chopped
    • 3 large stalks celery, sliced
    • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
    • 3 Tbsp sugar
    • 1/2 tsp celery seed
    • 1/2 large red cabbage, shredded to yield about 6 cups
    • salt and pepper (optional)
    • 2 Tbsp chopped parsley for garnish


Cut bacon slices into 1-inch pieces, and sauté over medium-low heat in a very large, deep skillet until crisp but not overdone. Remove to absorbent paper, and reserve. Drain off all bacon fat, and replace with olive oil.

Heat oil in skillet over high heat. Add onion and celery, and sauté briefly. Add vinegar, sugar, and celery seed. Heat until boiling; immediately add cabbage and bacon pieces, all at once. Stir and toss for about 1 minute, or until the cabbage is warm, not cooked. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

Serve immediately while very warm with garnish of chopped parsley.
