Freezer Coleslaw!

Recommended Posts

I personally don't like coleslaw with mayo or sour cream but a good ole NC style coleslaw with vinegar goes perfect with chopped bbq or pulled pork! Here's a recipe for freezer coleslaw that takes about 1hr to make but needs at least 3 days in freezer.


1 cup sugar

1 cup white vinegar

1 cup of water

1/2 tsp celery seeds

8 cups of shredded cabbage

1 large carrot shredded

1/2 cup green bell pepper chopped

1/2 cup red bell pepper chopped

1 med sweet red onion finely chopped

1 tsp table salt


Stir together the sugar, water, vinegar, and celery seeds in a sauce pan bring to boil, let boil for 1 to 2 minutes- remove from heat let completely cool.

Stir together the cabbage and the rest of ingredients mix well, pour liquid over cabbage and mix well and divided between 4 one quart freezer bags and place in freezer for min 3 days up to 30 days.

Thaw coleslaw at room temp for at least 3hrs before serving-My whole family on my mom's side eats this so good!!

I'm with you there. I see folks having a picnic with mayo based slaw sitting in the sun for hours and think my goodness that must be awful. Vinegar based slaw for me thanks!

We do a recipe that's very similar, except for the freezer part. What is the freezer doing for you?

HalfSmoke just something that was always done and never fails, been told never do for less than 3 days no more than 30! Not a family recipe just a southern thing.
