Ever freeze cole slaw mix?

I bought two bags on sale this week. One is rainbow slaw. It has broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, red cabbage and cabbage cut sort of like spaghetti. I put some in our chicken vegetable soup this week and really looked like I had cooked pasta added in there.

I only use this for soups or for cooked cabbage; so I was thinking of freezing the rest. Anybody ever tried this? I guess I have nothing to lose because we probably can't finish it all before it goes bad.

If you actually used it as coleslaw salad, where it needed to be fresh and crispy, the freezing wouldn't work. But since freezing makes veggies soft, once they thaw out, but you cook this stuff anyway.. it won't matter. It'll just be like any other frozen package of vegetables when you thaw them out. Very soft.

I have done this a time or two myself, a sale is a sale!!!

It does freeze well but can only be used like in soup, I put in enough for a meal in a couple plastic bags, then when I made soup or stew I toss it in still frozen! Love a good sale!

Thanks, ladies. Yep, I love a sale.

I packed what was left into snack size zippies and then put them all into a gallon size freezer bag. Perfect portions of cheaper produce. Yay.

If you don't breach the package vacuum, it will store in the fridge for like a month without a problem

Thanks, Dottie. That is good to know for future reference. My bags were both open and one of them was getting close to the use by date. I don't know if I was just unlucky and got an old bag; but the regular slaw mix was end dated the same week I bought it! I am going to have to watch that next time and maybe pull a package from the back.
