Bacon Blue Cheese Slaw

Bacon Blue Cheese Slaw

We had burgers, baked, beans, and this easy side dish recipe for Bacon Blue Cheese Slaw that was truly a hit with everyone at our summer BBQ party.

Happy Father’s Day!!!

We celebrated the most amazing father’s this past weekend, including my husband and of course, my dad!

One of the ways we celebrate in our family is making the BEST food for these special guys.

It’a a great way to jazz up traditional coleslaw.

And really adding bacon to anything just makes it better 😉

How to Make Bacon Blue Cheese Slaw

Start with cutting a pound of bacon right into a skillet over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes.

Stir it a few times throughout.

Once the bacon is done put the crumbles on a plate lined with paper towels.

Let it cool while you make the slaw.

So I did take some help from the store and bought a coleslaw mix that was already cut.

But I did make my own dressing.

3/4 cup mayo, 3 Tbsps red wine vinegar, and 2 Tbsps of sugar is all it takes.

Whisk it in a small bowl and voila…slaw dressing is done.

To the coleslaw mix, add a bunch of sliced green onions.

It gives a burst of color and a very subtle onion flavor.

Next up, add 6 ounces blue cheese crumbles.

And that pound of bacon from earlier.

Toss it together with tongs and you have Bacon Blue Cheese Slaw fit for kings, or at least for my husband and dad on Father’s Day 😉
