Since I’m featuring lots of cabbage recipes during March when cabbage is always on sale, I thought it would be a good time to remind you about this amazing Ridiculously Easy Blue Cheese Coleslaw with a dressing made from my favorite Litehouse Blue Cheese Dressing thinned with some buttermilk, and this tasty coleslaw with blue cheese flavors has turned into one of my favorite side cabbage salads (on a blog that’s loaded with cabbage salad favorites!) And you can absolutely make this salad with purchased coleslaw mix that’s already chopped if you’re not concerned about a few extra carbs from the carrots.
I love the low-carb blue cheese dressing that’s the base of the dressing for this salad; be sure to check the label if you’re watching carbs and don’t find the brand I used. The buttermilk adds a few carbs but you’re not using a huge amount of it, and cabbage is a vegetable that’s fairly low in carbs and loaded with fiber, so I feel like this is a good choice for a healthy low-carb salad.
And I’m pretty crazy over this Ridiculously Easy Blue Cheese Coleslaw even when I don’t have any blue cheese crumbles to mix into the salad, but if you have crumbled blue cheese to add, that does take it completely over the top. I keep the shredded cabbage mixture in a plastic container in the fridge and mix in the dressing right before I eat it, and I could happily eat this for lunch most any time of year.
How to Make Ridiculously Easy Blue Cheese Coleslaw:
(Scroll down for compete printable recipe, including nutritional information.)
- Mix together your favorite thick blue cheese dressing and some buttermilk to make the dressing. I use about 3 parts dressing to one part buttermilk, but you might want to adjust that if you use a different brand of blue cheese dressing.
- Slice a generous amount of green onion.
- I use my Mandoline Slicer (affiliate link) to cut the cabbage, but you can also use a knife. I slice it thin with the mandoline and then chop the slices into shorter lengths.
- Mix the red cabbage, green cabbage, green onion, and celery seed, and then stir in the dressing. (If you’re not eating it all at once, only mix dressing in the amount you’ll be eating.)
- And if you’re really a blue cheese fan, go ahead and mix about 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese into the salad.
I promise this will be a hit with anyone who likes cabbage and blue cheese. And you don’t have to tell them how ridiculously easy it is to make!

I like Lighthouse Original Blue Cheese for this dressing, but use any brand that's low in carbs. The crumbled blue cheese is totally optional but it's delicious if you're a blue cheese fan.
