The things I like most about this slaw is the ability to freeze it, and it's very low fat! When thawed, it still had a little crunch, which was good. Can give just 4 stars (sorry) because the vinegar/sugar mixture was a little strong for my family's tastes. I added a little mayonnaise, which tamed the vinegar and made a tasty slaw. The mustard and celery seeds add nice change of pace from regular slaw.
