To begin making this recipe I dumped a bag of store bought coleslaw mix into a large salad bowl.

Then  I dumped in some cut up grape tomatoes, cut up cucumber and bacon crumble.

The next step was to prepare the dressing.  To do this I stirred together some Miracle Whip, mustard, granulated sugar and a bit of vinegar into a small mixing bowl.  I give suggested amounts of each in my recipe but you can make adjustments to suit your taste buds.

Then I poured the dressing over the ingredients in the salad bowl.

I stirred until all the ingredients were coated with the dressing.

Then I added in two Asian pears that I had cut up earlier.  If you do not have Asian pears you just need a firm type of pear or you could skip adding this ingredient.

After stirring in the Asian pears I added a bit of salt and pepper.  People can add more to their individual servings if they desire.

Whether entertaining guests or just having a quiet meal at home Loaded Coleslaw will add a burst of colour to your table.
