Blue Cheese Coleslaw - A fantastic, easy coleslaw recipe made even better with chunks of blue cheese throughout!

Sometimes, a recipe idea gets stuck in the back of my mind – and that’s what happened with today’s Blue Cheese Coleslaw.

A few years ago on a business trip, I remember seeing a pulled pork sandwich on the menu at a restaurant where I was eating lunch with a client. That sandwich was served with a Blue Cheese Coleslaw on the side – and being a huge blue cheese fan, I thought it sounded fantastic!

I ended up ordering something else to eat for lunch that day (messy pulled pork sandwiches are NOT the thing to order when you’re trying to impress a client!) – but over the years, I still thought about that Blue Cheese Coleslaw on the menu.

Fast forward to today…Jack and I have been brainstorming various summer potluck-themed recipes to share here on A Family Feast.  And – you guessed it – that Blue Cheese Coleslaw came rushing back to my mind.

Jack always makes this fantastic coleslaw recipe – so I knew that he could bring my blue cheese coleslaw recipe to life in a very delicious way! He more than delivered with today’s recipe – this coleslaw is perfectly balanced with a tangy, creamy dressing with a touch of sweetness and bites of that distinctive blue cheese throughout.

You’re going to get rave reviews when you serve this Blue Cheese Coleslaw at your next summer barbecue!

    crappy that you don’t list the yield. and beyond that, would be nice to allow me to adjust the yield before printing. Not going to make this without knowing yield. Careless!

    Good morning Martha… cheese slaw will be perfect for the BBQ pork chops I’m making tonight. Our whole family are fans of blue cheese on salads, steaks and burgers, even our small grandchildren wanted it on their salads.
    I have had blue cheese slaw in restaurants and loved it, now I can make what I’m sure will be a better version. Your recipes never fail to impress!!!
