"I have always preferred a mayonnaise based slaw, but this recipe changed my mind! I prepared this slaw to feed lots of college students and they loved it too. It freezes well in a freezer bag and takes about a day to thaw. I've made it several times and know it will be a "keeper" recipe for a long time."
