Red, White & Bleu Slaw Recipe

Fourth of July Fun Foods Continued…..

A few days ago I thought I’d start giving my readers a few ideas for low fat and /or low calorie fun and festive recipes to help make this Independence Day a little bit cooler.   After searching for great ideas, I posted a recipe for Independence Day Sundaes and now have another fun sweet treat for you.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups of angel hair coleslaw mix (you can find this at most grocery stores in the produce section; I use Dole or Fresh Express for mine)

  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ¾ cup of coleslaw salad dressing (I like Marzetti’s low-fat version)

  • ¾ cup of crumbled blue cheese

  • ½ cup of real bacon bits

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine coleslaw mix, tomatoes, salad dressing, and ½ cup of blue cheese. Cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, sprinkle with rest of blue cheese and bacon bits. Makes approximately 6 servings.
