Blue Cheese Broccoli Slaw

Well, despite my last post, I am still working hard at my low-carb diet. I've hit a couple of minor bumps in the road, but am still down 20 pounds. Woooo hoooo!! But if I'm going to keep making dishes like this cole slaw, I'd better stay off the carbs. This is a pretty high fat dish, but it is SOOOOOO yummy. I was actually surprised at how good it came out. I served it with buffalo-seasoned chicken that I had in the crock pot all day.

I reviewed lots of blue cheese cole slaw recipes. Ina Garten's Blue Cheese Cole Slaw recipe has 13 ingredients and lots and lots of chopping. I'm sure it's good, but I don't have that kind of time. After looking at a few other recipes online, I came up with the following:

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp. sugar (I used Stevia equivalent)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 bag broccoli slaw (10 oz. I think)
5 oz. crumbled blue cheese

In a bowl, mix together mayo, sour cream, sugar, salt and pepper. Add broccoli slaw mix. Stir well. Add blue cheese and mix well. Chill for an hour or so for best flavor if you have time.

I'm wondering where the recipe for the buffalo crock-pot chicken is... Can you post that? It sounds delicious! (and the slaw too)

Oh, Emily, that was so easy I didn't post it. I poured a whole bottle of buffalo marinade over a whole chicken and put it in the crock pot for about 7 hours. It is OK to pick a spicy marinade because it gets watered down while cooking - or just save some for a dipping sauce. Love your latest videos of Caroline!!

Oh wow. Drooling over this. It HAS to be awesome. Such a great idea to toss in blue cheese. Leave it to Ina to make something good even better.
