Sassy Freezer Slaw

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"Coleslaw made up and put in the freezer. Easy to take out and thaw when you need it in a hurry. It does have a crunch to it and a sweet-sour vinegar based dressing. Freeze for up to two months. Chopped onions and bell peppers are an option to add in if you like them."
