This is somewhat of an embarrassing thing so say, but I am so excited to share this recipe with y’all. After all, it’s just a slaw recipe. I should not be that concerned about a “side dish” that goes on hot dogs, burgers or a picnic buffet table. Well, that is NOT how I roll. Being from the South, we take things like slaw seriously. I know, that’s a little dramatic, so, here’s the real story.I’ve been making this blue cheese slaw for years. Every time I do, people RAVE about it – even people who don’t really care for cabbage. There’s just something about the combination of mayo, 2 different mustards and those tender, pungent blue cheese crumbles that make everything come together beautifully with crunchy shredded cabbage.At a party we hosted this week, I served my Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken on slider rolls topped with this slaw. Ok, now you get where I’m going. Is there really, anything better than chicken, bathed in buffalo sauce then combined with blue cheese? Honey child, this was some good stuff! Not to be braggadocios, but one of the men at the party did exclaim – “oh man, this is just the perfect bite!” Of course, I smiled and said, “I know, I planned it that way.” All kidding aside, this is a great recipe. It will exceed your expectations about what slaw really is and surprise your family and friends.
