Frozen Coleslaw

READY IN: 1hr 31mins
Recipe by Cindy Lynn

We usually prefer slaws with creamy dressings, but we've never found one that freezes. This is a recipe passed on to me from Mom and has been a delicious alternative so we could use up the extra cabbage (after making sauerkraut of course) from the garden. I am posting it to assist with a discussion on the boards. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Prep time includes time cabbage mixture has to stand before adding dressing.

I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup.It freezes well and is nice and tart this way.
