What to Serve With Coleslaw?

Depending on the type of coleslaw you made, will depend on how you want to serve it up! Let me share some ideas with you so you can see different ways to enjoy this tasty coleslaw side dish. 

  • Top pulled pork or beef sandwiches with a bit of a classic or spicy slaw. 
  • Fill your tacos with a pile of coleslaw. 
  • Eat as a side for your main dish, whether beef, pork, hamburgers, chicken, etc. 
  • Or find any other way you like pairing your coleslaw to your other recipes. 

Can You Heat Coleslaw?

Coleslaw or slaw is made with fresh cabbage and a creamy dressing. Most of the ingredients in coleslaw would not heat well, as it would break down, become mushy and the flavors would change. Almost any coleslaw recipe will need to be chilled and refrigerated.  

Can You Freeze Shredded Cabbage?

If you are making a coleslaw recipe and have extra cabbage leftover you can actually freeze it. Simply place in a freezer bag and freeze as is. Or if you want you can blanch and freeze the cabbage leaves if you prefer.  

How Long Will Coleslaw Last In The Fridge?

Depending on your recipe will vary in how long coleslaw will last. But in generally you will only want to keep your coleslaw mixture for around three days. Anything after that you will want to toss it out. 

I hope you enjoyed all these incredible coleslaw recipes to give you inspiration on how to change up your coleslaw game!
