It would be difficult for me to pick a favorite vegetable.
Brussels Sprouts are a recent obsession. (I make them in my Air Fryer at least once a week. Last week I wasn’t feeling good and hubby and I had Brussels Sprouts for dinner.)
Cauliflower is beyond versatile. (I regularly make Cauliflower Mash and use it in casseroles in place of pasta. Plus there is Cauliflower Pizza Crust.)
And of course, there are all the great veggies that go into a salad. I never get tired of salad.
An unusual favorite is cabbage.
I am a little obsessed.
A weird favorite vegetable? Probably. I love the texture that cabbage gives to salads, wraps, and sandwiches.
And of course, there is coleslaw, where cabbage really gets a chance to shine.
Of course, when you make coleslaw as much as I do, you have to find a way to mix things up.
Enter this Blue Cheese Coleslaw.
It is easy to make and so versatile. Perfect for easy spring and summer entertaining.
This is great by itself but also turns sandwiches, wraps, and burgers into something special! This Blue Cheese Coleslaw recipe really steals the show.
Plus, regardless of how you like to eat, there is a way to make it work.
If you are Keto, you may want to opt to use all mayonnaise. If you are trying to keep fat lower, use all yogurt. And if you are vegan, use vegan blue cheese (like this one) and Vegenaise. (Vegenaise is also amazing if you are egg-free.)
This Blue Cheese Coleslaw can be made in advance, but I prefer to make it in the morning if I am entertaining. That way if there are any leftovers they are in great shape the next day for sandwiches and wraps!
