"Coleslaw made up and put in the freezer. Easy to take out and thaw when you need it in a hurry. It does have a crunch to it and a sweet-sour vinegar based dressing. Freeze for up to two months. Chopped onions and bell peppers are an option to add in if you like them."

Easy enough to make and ideal to have on hand or to make ahead of time if you want a non-mayo Slaw and/or might not have fridge space. I thought the dressing favored the sweet as opposed to the sour side as I found the sugar to temper the sharpness of the vinegar (I happen to like vinegar so to someone else it may taste otherwise). I added half a green bell pepper which was plenty and next time will add onion too. After thawing I found the slaw surprisingly to still be crunchy even though freezing and thawing changed that of the original fresh texture, the change was not a negative.

Made this for Recipe Group...If you like slaw in any form, you're gonna LOVE this! I like that this is made and ready to go in the freezer for a quick side. I halved the recipe and used one 16oz. bag of coleslaw mix (YES, I'm lazy, lol), and that worked perfectly. The dressing is SOOOOO GOOD! Thanks, sass, this is a keeper~YUM! :)

REVIPE GROUP 8/20/14: Thank you sassyoldlady for saving a better memory of my grandma. She had her version of freezer slaw at every single meal. As a kid, I was not thrilled but had to try a bite of everything:( When this came up on the Buzz there were three heads of cabbage in the garden so I had to give it a shot. We are both so happy with your version. I made a small batch and two days later made a large batch. I thawed two half cup containers two days ago, crispy and still awesome. Thanks again!
