Blue Slaw

One of my loves is soft cheese.  I love goat cheese, feta and blue cheese, and add one of these to pretty much anything and I’m in!  Soft cheeses was honestly what I missed the VERY most during pregnancy. Darn those un-pasturized delicious cheeses! Bring on the blue cheese burgers, greek salads, goat cheese pizzas, and of course – blue cheese slaw!

I created this delicious slaw using my mini kitchenaid stand mixer and the fresh prep attachment.  There is such a difference between a bag of pre-made cole slaw mix and fresh sliced cabbage and carrots. The fresh prep attachment makes it so easy and quick, and the result is a crisp and delicious cole slaw.

Food Truck Inspo

There is this trendy, cool thing here in LA called the food trucks.  You may have heard about it on the food network, or you may have been to one of these set ups.  It is basically a bunch of gourmet catering trucks that gather at one location and allow the public to buy a meal; kind of like a food court on wheels, except waaaayyy better.

There is a food truck stop location near us each Friday, and we enjoy going down there.  It’s a great way to eat out with a baby and try some new foods.   Recently I had a pulled pork sandwich with blue cheese cole slaw at a food truck.  It was Ah-mazing.  I think I’ve said it before, but I’m not a huge cole slaw fan, especially when eating it on it’s own, but this one had blue cheese, and it was on top of a sandwich.  “I’ll have one of those please!”

Slaw As A Pulled Pork Topping

My mother-in-law makes a delicious pulled beef with traditional cole slaw. I was reluctant at first, but was sold at first bite. Between my mother-in-law’s pulled beef and the sandwich I had at the food trucks, I was inspired to create this meal.

Assemble the sandwich by placing some pulled pork on the bottom at the blue slaw on the top.  Be sure to wear a bib while eating this meal. :)
