Warm Bacon-Kissed Brussels Sprouts Slaw Recipe Is Infused with Smoky Goodness

This one-skillet dish is sure to satisfy

When it comes to summer sides, slaws are at the top of my list. They’re easy to make, and you can serve ’em with just about anything from sandwiches to barbecued chicken and grilled steak. But I’m always on the lookout for clever ways to mix things up. That’s why this Warm Bacon-Kissed Brussels Sprouts Slaw recipe is a new favorite. It comes together in no time. And with only 5 ingredients, cleanup is a breeze.

When preparing dishes with just a few ingredients, it’s key to coax out the most flavor. We crisp up bacon in a skillet, then add olive oil to the drippings before stirring in onions and shredded sprouts. This infuses the veggies with another layer of smoky deliciousness. Then for even more of a pop, add a splash of apple cider vinegar to release all those crispy bits from the bottom. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
