With Juniper Berry Infused Blue Cheese
This colorful coleslaw is the perfect addition to grilled fish & meat. The lively color is from the red and green cabbage with flakes of orange from the carrots. The unique sauce is made from Deer Creek Farms “The Blue Jay”, quintuple cream blue cheese infused with juniper berry.
Juniper berries? Let’s just say this coleslaw would go fabulous with a perfectly chilled Gin Martini. Though they are best known for being the predominant flavor in gin, juniper also compliments heavier meats, game and some vegetables like cabbage. Their flavor comes off as a cross between rosemary and berries. It has more of a crisp clean mountain air feeling than a strong pine aroma. So once you take the strong flavor of blue cheese, the acidity of the red wine vinegar and the heftiness of the cabbage, the juniper berry brightens them all into a sunny meadow of tastiness.
This juniper infused coleslaw also adds a new dimension to BBQ Pork Burgers, BBQ Shredded Pork Sandwiches or with Beef Brisket.
