How Do I Make Blue Cheese Coleslaw?

This blue cheese coleslaw is made like a regular coleslaw. Chopped cabbage and carrots, mixed with a sweet, tangy dressing loaded with blue cheese crumbles. My favorite part? The bacon pieces that get mixed in. If you’re in a rush though or have no bacon on hand it can absolutely be left out.

We make this coleslaw often and only rarely go through the effort of cooking the bacon to add it in.

How Do I Make A Coleslaw Dressing?

This coleslaw dressing is made with a base of mayonnaise and sour cream. Mixed with a bit of sugar for sweetness and apple cider vinegar for a tangy bite.

Mixed all together this make a creamy dressing that coats the coleslaw mix perfectly. To make this a blue cheese coleslaw we just need to add the blue cheese crumbles. I like to mix some of the crumbles into the dressing and then sprinkle a bit on top as well.
