Blue Cheese, Walnut and Apple Slaw
- 1/2 cup walnut pieces
- 1 medium apple, peeled and cored
- 1/2 cup bottled ranch salad dressing
- 1/3 cup pre-crumbled blue cheese
- 1 (16 oz) bag coleslaw mix
- black pepper
Place walnut pieces on a rimmed baking sheet and bake them in a preheated 350 degree oven until they begin to darken, about 5-7 minutes (watch carefully)
Meanwhile, coarsely grate apple on a grater, using the larger holes. You should have about 1 cup.
Place ranch dressing and blue cheese in a large serving bowl. Stir to combine and mash the blue cheese a bit to incorporate it into the dressing. Add coleslaw mix and grated apple and stir to coat well with the dressing. Season with black pepper to taste.
Just before serving, sprinkle the toasted walnuts on top of the slaw.
