How To Freeze Coleslaw In A Container

Freeze the coleslaw dressed in vinegar as soon as possible after making it.
Never freeze creamy slaw made with pure mayonnaise. However, you can freeze coleslaw made with Miracle Whip because this condiment is made with different ingredients. Bonus: This means KFC coleslaw can be frozen, too.
