Grated red beets are mixed into traditional slaw ingredients, like cabbage and onions, to create a salad with a vibrant pink hue. You can use green, savoy, or red cabbage here; they will all work perfectly. The creamy saltiness from the blue cheese and the sweet crunch from pecans add so much flavor that a little goes a long way. Be sure to give the slaw a few hours in the fridge to soften the texture of the cabbage and for the flavors to infuse.
