Low-Carb Cabbage, Fennel & Bacon Slaw with a Fried Egg

This delicious salad will be a hit for your family and friends!  It can be served as a main dish for lunch or dinner….(or heck, even breakfast), or it can be served as a side dish with or without the fried egg.

First combine the broccoli slaw, chopped coleslaw and red cabbage.  I purchased the ready-made broccoli and coleslaw from my produce department.  I chose a coleslaw cabbage mix that consisted of green cabbage, carrots and red cabbage.  I also purchased a head of red cabbage that I sliced and added to the mix for more color.


I have always loved the flavor of fennel and it is so delicious in salads.  It adds a delicious crunch and is a nice surprise to the pallet.

I coarsely chopped the fennel.

Then I gave a gentle toss to combine the vegetables.

Bacon!  Can you ever have enough bacon?!  I cooked up two pounds and then chopped it up into pieces.

Add the bacon.

Give it all another toss.

Then I added the garlic salt, course ground black pepper, olive oil and red wine vinegar.

Give it another toss!

I topped my salad with two fried eggs…cooked in the bacon grease.
