If you read Monday’s post then this slaw is no surprise to you. If you missed Monday’s post then make sure you check out our recipe for pulled pork sliders; the pork was a perfect match to this Cole Slaw with Blue Cheese.
Let’s rewind to about a month ago. I was sitting on the train on my way to work…usually I try to read a book or take a nap but this particular time I overheard 2 ladies talking about food. Immediately I started listening in.
Basically one lady was raving about her recent dinner of pulled pork sliders with blue cheese cole slaw. Being the food snob that I am, my initial reaction was “gross!” But it stuck with me and eventually I threw the idea out to Kara and Cliff. They were game! Kara already had a favorite pulled pork slider recipe so we decided to try it out. It turns out the slaw was a perfect touch, the lady from the train was right!
Now…if you don’t like blue cheese then this is probably not the recipe for you; you can definitely taste it! But since I love all kinds of cheese I thought it was delish.
4 cups cabbage (shredded)
2 cups purple cabbage
1 carrot (shredded)
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons grainy mustard
juice from ½ a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup blue cheese (crumbled)
1 handful parsley, chopped
Mix both cabbages and carrots in a large bowl. Mix in the chopped parsley. Combine mayo, sour cream, mustard, lemon juice, and salt and pepper in a small bowl then pour onto the slaw. Mix thoroughly. Fold in the blue cheese then cover and let mellow in the fridge for a few hours. Serve with pulled pork sliders or as a side dish.
