Party Gorgonzola Slaw

Darrell Campbell, chef de cuisine at Davanti Enoteca, created the dressing for this slaw about four years ago and used the slaw as a side to a chicken wing dish. He also has used the dressing with shredded cabbage on barbecue pulled-pork sandwiches and at the restaurant the slaw is served as a side with crispy pork ribs (shown). “The slaw is a great Italian twist on an American classic,” he says. “I have had people who do not even like blue cheese love this gorgonzola dressing.” The chef warns that if a creamy blue cheese is not used, the dressing will be lumpy.

5 quarts red and green cabbage mix, very thinly sliced

Pinch cayenne
1 t. sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
4 oz. gorgonzola dolce (available at Venissimo Cheese)


Mix egg yolks, mustard and vinegar in a bowl. Slowly add both oils. Add enough water to get a slaw dressing consistency (or a loose aioli). Add the seasonings and then gorgonzola. Blend well to a smooth texture.
