Spring is in the air! I can always tell by the blooming oak trees that spring is on the way. This means picnics, days by the pool, and the BBQ grill sizzling out our favorite meats! This Blue Cheese Slaw is the perfect side to get the party started.
Here in Florida we only have one season-well almost (ha-ha)!!! But we do have the ever-slightest changes in weather. Spring is just days away and this lovely breeze in the air has us dusting off the grill and spending time outdoors!
The past few days have been just beautiful and beckoning me to create simple mouthwatering sides! You just got to have great sides to pair with all the grilling goodness that will be going on. It all seems to start with splendid spring and carry us through the sunny days of summer. I can just hear the splashing in the pool and smell the charcoal in the air!
Whether you are grilling hamburgers & hot dogs, chicken or even smoking a nice pork butt! I can think of a million things this slaw can accompany. Pile it high on the plate or top that pulled pork sandwich and heaven starts singing with this tangy deliciousness!
The thing I love about slaw, it's one of those things you can throw together in seconds. Put in the fridge and enjoy your time with family and friends. It's no fuss and packed full of flavor!
Begin with the humblest ingredients (Now you can chop until your heart's content), but for me my grocery store does all that work for me. You know me I love easy! I grab a bag full of chopped cabbage (slaw mix) and it's ready for me to add the magic.
In a bowl mix mayo, sour cream (this is the magic I'm speaking of), apple cider vinegar, & sugar for your slaw dressing base! Toss in the cabbage blend and then add in those pecans and blue cheese. Then just salt & pepper to taste and you have the perfect slaw.
