    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. <br/>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.

    I made this one month ahead for a crowd I was having here for a party. It was absolutely delicious and it got rave reviews! I must say I was a little nervous throwing this in the freezer, I thought it would be wilty, but it turned out great. I highly recommend this one, especially if you want to have a great make ahead dish. Thanks for a well written and easy to follow recipe!
