Red Cabbage Roquefort Slaw

Roquefort cheese is one of the oldest cheeses made in France. Pair it with red cabbage, some dijon mustard, mayo and citrus and you’ve got one decadent and different side for your memorial day barbecue.  Oooh, and it takes a good picture too.

This recipe is a collaborative effort. Our wonderful cook and writer, Terry Krongold sent me the recipe. I decided to make it for my family barbecue recently and felt the need to lighten it up a bit with some lemon juice and white wine vinegar. You can choose your favorite. Create the original. Taste and tweak any way you wish.


2 medium heads red cabbage
1-1/2 C crumbled Roquefort
2 C fresh chopped parsley
½ C grainy Dijon mustard
3-1/2 C Hellman’s mayo

(Deborah’s Tweak:) 2Tbs. Lemon Juice, 2 Tbs. White Wine Vinegar


Remove outer cabbage leaves & reserve. Core & finely shred cabbage. In large bowl, add 1 C Roquefort & 1 C parsley with the cabbage. Toss well. In separate bowl, combine mustard & mayo; add to cabbage & coat thoroughly. Line large glass bowl with reserved outer leaves. Add cabbage mixture. Chill 2 hours.
