Crack slaw! It is awesome.

I also do a cheesy version of this:

hamburger
Slaw
mushrooms
chili powder
cream
sour cream
shredded cheese

YUMMY!!!!!!!!!

Yum! Freezer Slaw my fave!

Freezer Coleslaw

1 bag shredded cabbage & carrots (cole slaw mix)

Dressing
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white vinegar
Sweetener of choice to equal about a cup of sugar (I use 1/4 tsp Sweetzfree)
1/8 cup water
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon mustard seed


Combine and boil dressing ingredients for 1 minute. Cool and pour over slaw and mix well. Freeze overnight in individual servings, thaw or microwave to enjoy.

You can double or triple this recipe and freeze it in plastic freezer containers. It thaws quickly and makes side dish or snack to pull out when you need something quick.

This soundsinteresting Orlando. Why the reason for freezing?

I toss it with a dressing of around 2 parts mayo to one part cider vinegar, eg, for one serving, 1 tbsp mayo, 1/2 to 1 tbsp cider vinegar, maybe a couple tbsp chopped walnuts.

It just seems to sorta chrystalize the slaw with the dressing. Also I make triple batches of this, and always have some in the freezer ready to pull out and MUNCH! I have tried just in the fridge overnight, and it does seem to be missing a certain "zing" , so who knows, , I just know its a great, easy, cheap, LC, thing to grab and go

Another thing we love with leftover shredded cabbage - finely dice some onions, saute them in a good blop of bacon fat til they're translucent, throw in the shredded cabbage and stir-fry it til it starts to wilt; add a little garlic salt and cook til just tender.

Add a little apple cider vinegar to the pan (stand back, hot vinegar is potent!) and some sweetener to taste - I like to use SF maple syrup, but SF honey or any other sweetener you have on hand will do. Add some diced cooked bacon, stirfry til heated through and some of the liquid is evaporated, and eat!

If you want to be REALLY decadent let almost all the liquid evaporate, then hit the pan with a couple tablespoons of heavy cream and stir til heated and combined. I up the sweetener a bit when I do this and DH calls it "candy cabbage!"
