Make ahead coleslaw that is a cheesy, salty and creamy super hero recipe!
The minute my taste testers (my friends and Tom my husband) took a big bite they all said the same thing. “OMG this tastes like a cob salad.” The crispy salty rush from the bacon, smokey blue cheese, the tangy lemony and creamy dressing. Also, there was a burger on their plate, so you know this was good if they wanted more. Its so funny how cheese bacon and cream will get my husband to eat salad. He is definitely a man after my own heart.
This recipe reminds me of the days as a child down at the Jersey Shore. We use to go to the local fried fish shake after the beach (if you lived by the Jersey shore you probably did the same thing. Its a Jersey thing). Like a best friend of the fried shrimp, there was always small surprisingly awesome plastic container of creamy coleslaw that was so crispy yum. As I eat this coleslaw it brought me back to those simpler times. Now I want fried fish lol!
