  • 3 slices bacon, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard

  • ½ teaspoon honey

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil

  • 2 medium carrots, sliced

  • ½ medium red onion, chopped

  • 4 cups chopped Savoy cabbage (½ medium head)


  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, Dijon mustard, whole-grain mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil.

  3. Transfer the bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon, leaving the fat behind. Increase heat to medium-high and add carrots and onion; cook, stirring often, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cabbage; cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to wilt, 1½ to 2 minutes. Add the vinaigrette and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the bacon.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
