Blue Cheese Coleslaw


This recipe is by far my favorite coleslaw recipe!  Now I don’t know that I could eat coleslaw without blue cheese =).  People who don’t even like blue cheese love this coleslaw.  It is amazing served alongside or over Paula Deen’s Pulled Pork Sandwich.  It is such a quick and easy salad/side.  The flavors of this coleslaw are amazing!  You won’t be disappointed.

  • Judy: A little late to the party. I just found this and made it. I used a broccoli slaw mix and gorgonzola instead of blue cheese. Turned out delicious! So happy I found this! March 6, 2018 at 7:07am Reply

  • Kelly: Do you think almond milk would substitute for the regular milk?
    (Just stumbled on your site via pintrest today, now I’m super excited to peruse and make some of these amazing recipes!) June 10, 2014 at 10:35am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I think that would be fine but I might use just a little less since it’s a bit thinner. I hope you love this Kelly! June 12, 2014 at 10:09am Reply

  • Jody: I think I’ve made this 4 x’s now, so I think that makes it a fave!! I’m doing no/low carbs so I’ve been sustituting 3pks of Splenda for the sugar & no one even noticed! This is ‘OMG’ good!! Thank you for the recipe! May 5, 2013 at 10:48am Reply

    • Jaclyn: You’re welcome Jody! So glad you like it. I haven’t had this for a while because I usually always make it in the summer when we are grilling burgers and so forth. I also love it with pulled pork sandwiches and I haven’t made those for awhile, I need to get on that :). Thanks for your comment! May 5, 2013 at 9:12pm Reply
