Apple-Bacon Slaw...

OK, here's another salad for you to try.  It's been splashed all over Pinterest, and I decided to give it a whirl today since I had most of the ingredients on hand.  Let me say this -- it was a big hit, and I could've eaten the whole bowl myself, but I resisted.  It definitely gets a "do again label" in this house.  I hope you like it too.

Apple-Bacon Slaw
revised from original recipe at Ghetto Foodie

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup mayonnaise
3 T. brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
 juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 medium cabbage, cored, shredded
1/2 lb. of bacon fried crispy then broken up into small bits
Half a medium onion (or green onions or scallions) chopped fine
4 firm apples, peeled, cored and grated
1 carrot, grated (for color)
Mix first six ingredients to make dressing.  (I added a couple teaspoons of the bacon fat to the dressing for more flavor.)  In a large bowl, combine cabbage, apples, carrot, onion, everything except the bacon.  Pour the dressing on and mix.  Let sit in the fridge a few hours to let flavors meld.  Just before serving, add crumbled bacon on top.  Stick a fork in it!

We've had mild weather here for lambing and it's going so very well.  We have had mostly twins and triplets and just six singles born out of about 55 head of ewes.  Thankfully, one of our local  veterinarians is going to take at least 20 bum lambs!  You have no idea how grateful I am for that.  We sent her 8 bummies today.  Lots more lambs yet to come.
