Red, White and Blue Cheese Coleslaw

In preparation of one of my most favorite holidays, I will be sharing some fun and delicious ideas for your festive backyard barbeque.  I first learned of Bleu Cheese Coleslaw in Charleston, SC where it can be found as a side on just about every menu.  Some prefer eating it with a spoon, and others like it as an addition to their burgers and dogs.  My favorite way to eat this creamy and tangy slaw is atop a juicy hotdog with a drizzle of Dijon mustard.  You be the judge.

Boathouse Bleu Cheese Coleslaw

Coleslaw

  • 2 heads green cabbage
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • crumbled bleu cheese, to taste

Dressing

  • 4 cups mayo
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • cayenne pepper, to taste

In large bowl combine cabbage, carrot, onion, and bleu cheese.  In another large bowl stir together mayo, sour cream, half & half, balsamic, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Blend together throughly.  Pour dressing over slaw ingredients and mix well until evenly distributed.

    Thanks for reminding me of this recipe Nat, I tasted it when we ate at The Boathouse and loved it. I’ll definitely be fixing it.
