Pass the bacon slaw … just when you thought slaw couldn’t get any better along comes a recipe with blue cheese AND bacon! (Bleu cheese, if you are French, blue cheese to the rest of us!) If you are in charge of making the slaw for this year’s 4th of July celebration, consider this recipe!  I found it in the May publication of the Tennessee Magazine and I couldn’t wait to make it.  There were six other slaw recipes but combining blue cheese (which I love) and bacon (and who doesn’t like bacon) seemed too good to pass up.

Since cabbage is one of the first crops from the garden I love cooking with it each week.  In slaw it is all crunchy and cool and easy to use.  One head of cabbage will feed the whole crowd at a barbecue, but if you aren’t into cutting and slicing then the packaged stuff works great too!

When I made this batch I added carrot sticks and some red cabbage I bought at the local farmers market.  You can add what you have on hand or leave it out, either way the recipe will be delicious!  And the leftovers … if there are any, are great piled on hot dogs, hamburgers, or a veggie sandwich the next day 🙂

Happy Cooking!
