Game Changer

Subtle ingredient substitutions can change the flavor instantly. Try sorghum or molasses in place of the honey & coarse ground or spicy mustard in place of the Dijon for richer, seasonal notes.

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 {16-oz} package cole slaw mix
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1 celery rib, sliced
4 bacon slices, cooked & crumbled
3/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
Garnishes: Fresh parsley & ground pepper

Whisk together the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk in the oil in a slow steady stream until combined. Stir in the slaw mix, the onion & celery. Fold in the bacon & the blue cheese just before serving. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

Try topping the slaw over mixed salad greens with grilled chicken & potato salad for a delicious lunch meal.
