Every time Hubby goes to Sam's Club he comes home with an enormous amount of cheese. Last time we had a block of feta to work our way through and this week we are enjoying a large amount of bleu cheese. We had a our fair share of yummy salads topped with bleu cheese and bacon - but last night I was in the mood for something a little different and since I had a bag of coleslaw mix in the fridge, I figured a Bleu Cheese Coleslaw would be a great idea. I thought I had an original idea but it turns out there are many many recipes for bleu cheese coleslaw and I used this one from Bethenny Frankel as a reference the other night. Honestly, I'm starting tho think there are no more original ideas - but hey great minds right?
This was a great quick fix to your everyday coleslaw - I really liked the added the flavor from the bleu cheese. We finished it all - next time I will surely double this recipe....Enjoy!!!
