I love blue cheese; and this dressing doesn't have the rich mayonnaise to make me feel guilty about eating it. A very pretty salad.

I took great liberties with this salad because I don't have the red cabbage named in the title. I subbed green cabbage that I had on hand, and to perk up the colors, used finely diced red onion instead of the green. I love bleu cheese, and the dressing for this salad really does showcase that flavor. I paired it with Corned Beef Bunwiches for an easy dinner. I have posted a photo, but I am sure that with the proper red cabbage, the salad would be very striking.

I have made this slaw several times just as the recipe says. It is always a hit with family and friends. My son-in-law dislikes mayonnaise, so he really enjoys a different kind of slaw. Be sure to slice the cabbage and lettuce as thin as possible. Good salad for any occasion.
