MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2013

This recipe is older than the hills and I remember my Grandmother serving it over thirty years ago. If I remember correctly, she used green pepper instead of red. It is a great way to use up the extra cabbage in the fall. YUMMO!

Needed more flavor. Loved the crunch and that u could just take it out of the freezer and thaw.

Made this recipe a couple of weeks ago, froze it, and defrosted and enjoyed it this past weekend when I had some company over. It was a big hit! Very tasty, wasn't mushy, all the flavors blended perfectly. Thank you for a real keeper!

So tasty. I didn't have room to freeze it so I made a half batch. That was way too much for eight people so I ended up getting rid of some of it. I would do a quarter recipe next time. I didn't have mustard seed but I did have ground mustard and that worked. It got raves along with the BBQ Chicken Sliders at a dinner I cooked.

I have not made this recipe yet but I am trying to find out if anyone put it in the freezer, and did it not turn mushy. I am the social director for a large Christian Choir and would love to make this ahead for our October opening. Please let me know. Johnson7756@msn.com
