Blue Cheese Coleslaw

Interesting, delicious mix of flavors. Not your usual coleslaw.


  • 1/2 head cabbage (shredded or chopped)
  • 1 bunch green onions (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (chopped (I use lots more, to taste))
  • 1-1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use small part sour cream.)
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish sauce (or 1 teaspoon of grated horseradish)
  • 2oz blue cheese (or gorgonzola)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • chili powder (to taste)
  • garlic powder (to taste)


  • 1 apple (chopped)


1. Grate or chop cabbage. If making ahead, sprinkle salt over the shredded cabbage, let sit for an hour or more (overnight is good), then gently press and drain off excess liquid (salad spinner works if the cabbage isn't grated too small). If you use this method (I suggest you do), adjust salt in recipe according to taste.
2. Add onions, cilantro, and apple to cabbage, mix well.
3. Mix remaining ingredients together and toss with cabbage mixture.
