what's cooking wednesday

Another easy recipe I am annoyed I didn't find until the end of summer. Here's hoping the weather stays nice enough for barbecuing for a little while yet.

blue cheese coleslaw

Blue Cheese Coleslaw

Bagged coleslaw mix (or grate up your own... it's your party, go nuts!)
Ranch salad dressing
blue cheese crumbles

Empty the bag of salad into a large bowl. Add ranch dressing until you reach the desired consistency. Sprinkle in blue cheese crumbles, to taste, toss and serve.

Recipe Notes: I stumbled across the recipe at some point during a mindless internet surfing session. The original recipe recommending putting the slaw in a burger dipped in wing sauce. We tried it and it wasn't great. So we tried it again with *chicken* burgers and it's one of our new favourite dinners. And the great news is, the entire family loves chicken burgers! Winner winner, chicken dinner!

What is What's Cooking Wednesday and how can I play?

What's cooking Wednesday was born out of a desire to get out of that what's for dinner rut. Playing is easy, on Wednesday post a recipe that has been tried and tested by you and then pop over here and add your name to the Mr. Linky. When entering your name also add the name of the recipe in brackets and make sure you link to your What's Cooking Wednesday post and not just your blog's front page. *All front page links will be deleted!* Don't make me be a jerk. And don't forget to link back here, the home of What's Cooking Wednesday.

So for example I would write Shan (Speedy Chicken Stir Fry) in the name section. For the URL section I would post this: http://shanrev.blogspot.com/2007/10/whats-cooking-wednesday-speedy-chicken.html

I'll let you in on a little secret, my WCW recipes are almost never made on a Wednesday. So feel free to cook and photograph whenever you have time and join us posting on Wednesday

I'm not big on coleslaw but the blue cheese might just win me over
