This slaw was really good before I put it into the freezer... I just didn't like what the freezer did to the cabbage. I would make it again but wouldn't try freezing it again.

This slaw had a very frozen taste to it. Definitely not comparable to fresh. I was hoping for the convenience of having it right at hand during the summer months but will go back to making it fresh.
