BLT Cole Slaw

Have you ever noticed how no barbecue is really complete unless you serve some coleslaw? There is just something about coleslaw that allows it to go with just about every single type of barbecue dish around. That being said, there are still times when even the classic taste of traditional coleslaw can become a little boring. If you find yourself in a situation where you would like to try a new type of coleslaw, or are even simply looking to spice things up a little bit, then you need to try this fantastic recipe for a BLT coleslaw. It will simply leave you wanting more. Best of all, this recipe will only take about ten minutes of preparation time, so it can be ready in almost no time at all.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups premade coleslaw mix
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 3/4 cup coleslaw salad dressing

Recipe:

  1. Mix ingredients. Use a large, plastic mixing bowl which can easily be sealed to begin combining your ingredients. Place the coleslaw mix, sliced cherry tomatoes, salad dressing, and 1/2 cup of salad dressing into the mixing bowl, and mix everything together until all ingredients have been coated with the coleslaw dressing, and evenly distributed throughout the bowl.
  2. Chill. Cover the bowl, and place it into your refrigerator. Leave the coleslaw in your refrigerator for at least an hour before you remove it. However, it is usually best to leave the coleslaw in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat.
  3. Garnish and serve. Remove the bowl from your refrigerator, and remove the lid from the bowl. Sprinkle the bacon and remaining cheese over the salad as a garnish, and serve. This coleslaw is best served while still cold, so if you are going to eat outside, you may want to consider placing your salad bowl in a larger bowl which has been filled with ice. This should help keep your BLT coleslaw nice and cold while people are eating.

This recipe, as described here, will provide six servings, with each serving being about 3/4 of a cup. However, if you wish to increase the size of your servings, simply increase the amount of ingredients used. The easiest way would be to double all ingredients, and then store whatever you don't use immediately for later consumption.
