This is was a great jumping off point for me. I would have never thought to use bleu cheese. However since you got my creative juices flowing I added 2 chopped apples with skin on 1 cup crushed walnuts and 1 3/4 cup plump craisins and fresh cracked pepper. It was yummy! It was a huge hit at a recent pot luck and everyone was asking for the recipe. Definitely make it again! Read More

I felt this coleslaw was a bit overpowering with the bleu cheese. The longer it sat the stronger it got too. Read More

I didn't change anything - Normally I make coleslaw a day or two in advance but I wouldn't suggest that for this one unless you are looking for a VERY strong blue cheese taste. It was great a few hours after making it - the next day it was strong (ok for me but maybe not for others!). Thanks submitter! Read More

This is a very tasty slaw but you really need to like bleu cheese to enjoy it. I followed the recipe as written but went a little heavy on the cheese since I really like it. I don't think the sour cream adds much to the flavor in fact I think it reduces the tang of the bleu cheese. Next time I will cut back or eliminate that ingredient. Read More

This was pretty tasty but i was hoping for something more similar to the slaw served at J.Alexanders. This is good base but I will keep trying!UPDATE: I think it would make a difference if you use a highquality blue cheese... all my store had was Treasure Cave which is mild. Also next day my cole slaw was not at all runny I think the key is really draining it well of the cider mixture. Read More

Followed the directions with the exception of the onion. I let this sit overnight to gain the full flavor. Excellent! Read More

WOW! I've never had a better coleslaw in my life! I added a few more bleu cheese crumbles since I'm a bleu cheese fanatic. This recipe will be made all throughout the summer. It was a hit at our company picnic! Read More

This was awesome. I decreased the amount of the vinegar mixture and added extra blue cheese and some seasonings. Other than that I followed the instructions and it was a total hit; twice!! Will make again and again. Read More

Halved the recipe and it turned out pretty well. I was a little concerned that since the mayo sour cream and blue cheese were equal quantities the blue cheese might dominate the flavor but it doesn't. You certainly can taste it but all flavors complement each other well. Nice change from the basic mayonnaise-based slaw. Read More
