Author Notes: I get SOOOO much cabbage in my CSA every year I am constantly making slaws - of all types. I really like the way the blue cheese sets a sharp tone against the slightly sweet mayo-y sauce. Perfect to go on a grilled steak sandwich. —meganvt01
Food52 Review: This is a nice twist on the 'standard' cole slaw. The tanginess of the apple cider vinegar and saltiness of the blue cheese work so nicely with the crunch of the cabbage. Very tasty, and a pitch-perfect summer side. —thehappycook
