Creamy and crunchy Blue Cheese Bacon Coleslaw is the perfect tangy/salty side dish for any grilled meat. It’s also fantastic as a topping on burgers and hot dogs and even on tacos.

A  little red cabbage and shredded carrot mixed in with the green cabbage gives some color.

Sometimes just a basic Buttermilk Coleslaw is what’s called for. Other times you want something a little more original. Caesar Coleslaw and this Blue Cheese Bacon Coleslaw fit the bill when you want a unique and extra tasty slaw.

 

I like to use fresh cabbage for coleslaw instead of the bagged mix. It’s worth the few extra minutes. The taste is much better and you get more for your money.

I love a combination of sour cream and mayonnaise for coleslaw. Together they are so creamy and rich and the sour cream gives just a little tang.

Since it is apple season, you could try adding a julienned apple for a little extra crunch and a touch of sweetness. It ALWAYS goes well with blue cheese and bacon.

 

I’ve added a tower of crispy bacon pieces. 🙂

Add them just before serving so they stay crispy.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a delicious way to eat this Blue Cheese Bacon Coleslaw.
