This easy recipe for classic coleslaw is the perfect creamy, crisp, and delicious accompaniment to just about anything hot off the grill. And the added hit of smokey, savory flavor from crumbled bacon puts it over the top. (Of course, you can leave the bacon out if you wish to keep the slaw vegetarian-friendly.) For another tasty twist, reader Nora Henshaw likes to add a little extra crunch to her coleslaw with a toasted peanut variation.
