One of the most common sides in the summer is coleslaw, but sometimes the same ole coleslaw gets boring. Insert this fantastic recipe! The creamy zing of the blue cheese combined with the saltiness of the bacon make this a fantastic side to all of your favorite summer dishes!
TIP: Feel free to use your favorite type of blue cheese. This recipe works great with Roquefort, stilton, or gorgonzola!
NOTE: It goes without saying, but this recipe is for fans of blue cheeses, as that flavor is strong and predominant. I adore blue cheese, so I really enjoy this coleslaw. But if you dislike blue cheeses, you might want to try one of our other favorite salads instead!
