This recipe was submitted by a request for an Icebox Coleslaw. It is from Quick Cooking magazine. I have not yet tried this recipe, but it sure does sound delicious.

This is really good, sweet sour taste. But it definitely needs more sugar it was to sour. I added more sugar to it once I defrosted and tasted it. Other recipes are calling for 2 cups sugar to 1 cup vinegar and this is how I will make it from now on.
I couldn't believe how crispy and fresh it tasted and I had it in the freezer for 3 months.

We enjoyed this tonight as part of a quick meal put together all with things from the freezer. (It meant I didn't have to order out after a long day!) This is very very sweet, and I'd cut down on the sugar a little bit next time. But it was good and convenient. Thanks.

Almost identical to a crowd-pleasing old recipe I have for railroad slaw. I never knew it could be frozen. I like that your recipe is half as sweet as the others posted here, and includes oil in the dressing. This one's going to be a keeper.
