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.


Blue Cheese Coleslaw


  • 1 (16 oz) pkg pre-cut coleslaw mix
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese


  1. Pour coleslaw mix into a large mixing bowl, set aside. In a small mixing bowl whisk together mayonnaise, milk, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour mixture over coleslaw mix and toss to evenly coat. Fold in crumbled blue cheese. Refrigerate coleslaw for 30 minutes, stir once more before serving.

  • Jaclyn: Made in Sonoma – I’m so glad to hear you tried and enjoyed this! I make it all the time, I never have plain ol coleslaw anymore I would just miss the blue cheese far too much. It makes a perfect side dish to pulled pork or pulled chicken sandwiches. Thanks so much for your comment! July 12, 2012 at 6:43pm Reply

  • Dennis: I made this to go along with grilled burgers and corn on the cob. Our son suggested topping the grilled cheseburgers with the slaw. We tried it, and added more fresh ground pepper and a little cayenne pepper to the top and LOVED it! Thanks September 8, 2012 at 4:16pm Reply

  • Shari Kelley: I made your blue cheese coleslaw last week and loved it! I also added Craisins which was delicious. I agree with you, I don’t ever want regular coleslaw again. Thank you for sharing the recipe. February 24, 2013 at 2:43pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Shari it looks great and the craisins addition sounds delicious! I’ll have to try it out the next time I make this. Thanks so much for your comment! February 24, 2013 at 7:19pm 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

  • 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

  • Marci L: I made this and added about 4 slices of crumbled turkey bacon, and about 1/4 tsp of celery powder. It was delicious! September 18, 2016 at 3:02pm Reply
