Amazing Coleslaw Recipe

I was sharing this with sholio and typing it up for one of Jake's coworkers anyway, so I figured I'd share the most incredible coleslaw recipe known to man with you guys, too. This is not your grandma's coleslaw.

The Most Amazing Coleslaw Ever

~1/3 lb bacon (about 4 1/2 slices) - fry crispy and crumble
1 lb slaw mix/chopped cabbage (this can include green and purple, as well as carrot gratings)
1/2 c chopped onion (optional!)
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/4 c sour cream
1/2 t mustard (the condiment, not the spice)
1 T lemon juice
1/2 t chili powder
1/4 t celery salt
1/4 t cayenne powder
1/2 t sugar
(Jake sometimes adds a little creole seasoning or celery salt - you can add favorite seasonings as well)

Mix wet ingredients and spices, then toss thoroughly with bacon, cabbage mix and onion. For best results, allow to rest at least a little over an hour (and preferably overnight) before consuming. Gets better with age and lasts about a week in the fridge.
