Winter Coleslaw Salad

October 15, 2010

In trying to use up some ingredients, I thought of a good side reminiscent of AAM’s favorite summer salad, coleslaw. I am not a fan of coleslaw, it is too soupy and flavorless, but this salad with blue cheese and dried blueberries shakes things up. AAM said that the dried blueberries were different, which is usually his polite let down. However, I liked them, so consider them optional. I served as a side with last night’s polenta peppers.

  • 2 cups of chopped purple cabbage
  • 1/3 cup of chopped onion
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 2 cups of chopped baby spinach

Blue Cheese Dressing:

  • 3 tb mayonaise

  • 2 tb apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 tspn Kosher salt
  • Splash of lemon juice


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss carrots, spinach, onions, cabbage, and blueberries together and stir in the dressing to coat.
