Mother used to make this Slaw for a Museum and Bistro restaurant she worked for and kept it on hand all the time in case they had a busy lunch and started to run out of salads. Because it is frozen, she could make a large batch and only defrost what she needed. No Mayo or easily perishable ingredients, and still crunchy when defrosted, It is a really popular, tasty slaw.
