Andouille sausage with blue cheese coleslaw is a yummy recipe to try this summer. Spicy sausage tempered by creamy and cool blue cheese coleslaw.
If you’re looking for a simple BBQ recipe that is perfect for summer and not “overdone” like regular hamburgers and hot dogs, I’ve got you covered. Made with andouille sausages and an easy blue cheese coleslaw this recipe is perfect!
The blue cheese coleslaw pairs wonderfully with the crisp smokey sausage and together they make quite the winning pair. No one will expect such a high-class and fancy dish to be served at a BBQ but no one needs to know how simple it was to prepare either.

How to Make Andouille Sausage with Blue Cheese Coleslaw
- Combine the cabbage, slaw, and cilantro in a bowl.
- Stir in the yogurt, mayo, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and blue cheese. Mix until combined. Keep stored in the fridge until ready to use.

How long is bleu cheese slaw good for?
This slaw can be kept stored in a well-covered or airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 or 4 days. For best results eat within a day or two because this is something you want to eat fresh, but the flavors taste even better on the second day because the ingredients have had longer to meld together.
What does Greek yogurt do in coleslaw?
This blue cheese coleslaw recipe uses greek yogurt to give us a creamy consistency without being overpowering. Most coleslaw recipes use mayo as a base but we only use a small amount of mayo while using more greek yogurt so that we can still stay true to the roots of this salad while still giving us creamy results in a healthier way.
Can I use storebought coleslaw mix?
Yes, if desired you can swap out the requested cabbage and angel hair coleslaw mix and simply buy a package or two of pre-shredded coleslaw blend from your grocery store’s salad section. This is perfect for helping to reduce the amount of time needed to prep as well as the number of dishes needed since you won’t need to chop the cabbage yourself.
