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!Print
