Buffalo Bleu Coleslaw

Whew! It's been a busy couple of weeks! There's hardly been time to cook, let alone blog about it. 

Tonight it was time to take a little break, sit back and chill, throw a couple of steaks on the grill and make the side dishes simple. So I did.

Every once in a while I post what I call a "quickie," and yes, this is one of them. It might have taken all of 2 minutes to put together a slaw that both Mark and I think is the best slaw I've ever made. 

Packaged slaw mix, mayo, the sweet/tart balance of vinegar and sugar, Tabasco's new Buffalo Style Hot Sauce and bleu (or blue, if you prefer!) cheese tossed together in a hurry and ready to pile on plates. Yep, it's essentially Buffalo wing coleslaw. A little sweet, a little heat and a whole lot delicious!

Buffalo Bleu Coleslaw

  • 4 cups packaged coleslaw mix (or shredded cabbage if you're feeling all industrious)
  • 1/4 cup bleu cheese, crumbled - extra for garnish, if you wish

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce, the Buffalo Style Hot Sauce variety (it's relatively new...look for it in the hot sauce aisle!)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

Put the coleslaw mix into a large bowl. Set aside.

Mix the mayo, vinegar, sugar, Tabasco and salt together until smooth.

Pour the sauce over the slaw, sprinkle with bleu cheese. Toss gently, but thoroughly. Serve.

Garnish with extra bleu cheese crumbles, if desired.

NOTE: Use lite mayo and Splenda to lower the calories...beach time isn't far away!
