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

1/2 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

1 cup water


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 like nice crisp Cole slaw. Freezing and then thawing has got to screw up the cabbage. 


No thank you - fresh or go home.

Never heard of freezing it!

Does that soften the cabbage shred or cause the liquid mixture to soak in deeper/better?

Deeper/Better =Yes
