Great ingredients in this wonderful, main course slaw salad. If you’re a blue cheese fan, I’m sure you’re gonna love it! And if you’re not, you might still enjoy it. My husband normally doesn’t like blue cheese dressing but does like my light version on this yummy salad. Each main course salad has 275 calories and 7 grams of fat. In addition, it’s loaded with fiber, 6 grams, thanks to the apples and cabbage.
