Cole Slaw with Blue Cheese

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.


Here’s what you’ll need

Mix together both cabbages, carrot and parsley

Combine the sour cream, mayo, mustard, lemon juice and s & p in a bowl. You’ll need this later

Pour in the sour cream/mayo mix

Now break apart the blue cheese and throw that in.


After it sits in the fridge for awhile all the flavors come together, its so tasty!!!


If you like blue cheese then this one is for you!
