bleu cheese, blueberries, celery heart, fresh herbs, honey, lime juice, mayonnaise, savoy cabbage, scallion
This is a nice little change of pace from Not-Quite-Classic Creamy Coleslaw. But, I think you’ll find this to be a surprisingly delicious change of pace. A change of pace is good….This goes together in a flash and is particularly a nice surprise with grilled pork or beef. It’s stupid simple…cabbage, scallions, celery heart and blueberries in one bowl and tossed together. The dressing ingredients in a second bowl, combine and pour over the salad. Toss to combined thoroughly. I like to add the bleu cheese separately and then toss again. But, feel free to add it to the dressing. That’s it. And, as you can see from the picture, I don’t always follow my own instructions…I just mixed it all together in one bowl…that works, too.
I do like to make it a bit ahead, so the flavors can run around and meld together. Mmmm…so good. Feel free to change the herbs, but personally, I like the addition of that little bit of fresh mint…it goes very well with the blueberries. Feel free to double or triple this and I do usually add the large amount of blueberries. Diced peaches or nectarines are a delicious addition, but add them just prior to serving. Enjoy!

- 2 cups finely shredded or chopped savoy cabbage
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup finely chopped celery heart (mostly leaves)
- 1/3-1/2 cup blueberries
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (light works just fine)
- Juice of half of a lime (about 2 tablespoons)
- 1-2 tablespoons honey
- 2 large pinches kosher salt
- 1 sprig cilantro, finely minced
- 2-3 fresh mint leaves or lemon balm, minced (optional)
- Pinch garlic granules
- 2-3 tablespoons crumbled bleu cheese
Combine the cabbage, scallions, celery, and blueberries in a bowl. Toss to combine. In another bowl combine the dressing ingredients (except the blue cheese); stir well. Pour over the salad and toss/stir to combine. Sprinkle on the bleu cheese and toss again. Chill for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to meld.
