Blue Cheese Bacon Coleslaw

The Reason:

Well, first off, I’m not sure you need a reason for Blue Cheese Bacon Coleslaw. Blue Cheese Bacon Coleslaw IS the reason. But this recipe has always been a hit, including Grandma Butterfly’s birthday, and I might also remind you that this was the #1 recipe at baconfest.

The Journey:

Well, there’s not much of a journey here. I don’t really remember why we made this the first time we made it, but you could see by looking at the recipe it was going to be good. Somehow, though, it’s even better than it looks!

I’m not even that much of a coleslaw fan, but this one I can guarantee.

The Verdict:

Awesome. Even ants love it, based on what happened when I spilled a bowl of it on our back porch and summoned every ant in a 10 block radius. They kept waiting around, hoping I would drop more, so I eventually had to poison them before they carried me back to their underground ant kingdom, to slavishly make Blue Cheese Bacon Coleslaw for the rest of my life.

The Recipe:

Recipe originally from Bon Appetit.

  • 8 bacon slices, chopped
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 16 ounces purchased coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese

Make sure the bacon is nice and crisp, and then dry it on paper towels. Whisk the mayo, vinegar, and honey in a large bowl. Stir in coleslaw, cheese, and bacon. Cover and chill.

Don’t dump the coleslaw in before whisking the other ingredients or Sara will be very mad at you.
