You’re going to love this keto-friendly blue cheese coleslaw!

Ready for a creative keto coleslaw side dish idea?

If you’re a blue cheese fan, you’ve gotta try making this homemade creamy keto blue cheese coleslaw recipe with bacon! It’s so yummy and super easy to toss together with a simple-to-make dressing.

The taste of blue cheese isn’t overwhelming due to the balance of apple cider vinegar and a little sweetness thanks to a touch of granulated monk fruit.

The addition of blue cheese crumbles to this dressing makes this slaw taste extra special and fancy, yet it’s a cinch to throw together as a side dish. Consider topping a juicy cheeseburger with this slaw for an entire over-the-top keto meal experience!

Tips for making the BEST keto blue cheese coleslaw with bacon:

  • I used a mandoline-style food slicer to easily cut my own cabbage into coleslaw shreds, but you could also use a knife instead. I didn’t use a prepackaged store-bought slaw mix because they usually have carrots included, and it ended up being pretty simple to cut it myself.
  • I shredded about 1/2 of a head of green cabbage and about 1/3 of a head of red cabbage. It came out to about 10 cups of cabbage altogether. If you just wanted to use only green cabbage, you could do that instead.
  • As far as the sweetness for the dressing, I started with a teaspoon of monk fruit, but if you like things sweeter, taste it, and add a little more if desired.

What a beautiful coleslaw that tastes as amazing as it looks!

I love the crunch cabbage has, and then with the creamy blue cheese flavors and smokiness of the bacon, oh my! In fact, my whole family thought this blue cheese & bacon coleslaw was an overall winner, and I think yours will, too!

This would be a great side dish for burgers, steak, chicken, fish, and even on top of some shredded pork BBQ. YUM!

Here’s what my team member and recipe tester Jenna had to say about this blue cheese coleslaw:

“I am a huge fan of coleslaw and I have had quite a few different kinds. I have to say this is in my top 3 favorite coleslaws ever… I was eating this by the plateful before I even refrigerated it lol! I am a HUGE fan of blue cheese and I cannot get enough of this, and my daughter who isn’t as into blue cheese as I am also loved this!

It was super easy to make and that dressing is just the best! I love the use of the crumbles whisked in the dressing, as well as on top of the slaw! The salty bacon and the extra sweetness really made this slaw so tasty.”
