Can you freeze cole slaw?

Answer

Coleslaw can be frozen. Freezing coleslaw allows the cook to prepare this side dish in advance, reducing the prep time right before an event. Coleslaw can remain in the freezer for up to two months.

Instead of the creamy mayonnaise dressing used in many coleslaw recipes, a coleslaw that is intended to be frozen can use a vinegar-based dressing. Seasonings such as celery seed, mustard seed and lemon pepper add more flavor to the coleslaw.

Once the dressing is combined with the cabbage and the other ingredients, it is ready to be spooned into plastic zip-top freezer bags. As much air as possible is removed from the bags, and then the bags are sealed and stored in the freezer.

The bag is allowed to sit in the refrigerator for at least two hours to thaw, and the excess liquid is drained off before serving the coleslaw.
