Is Coleslaw Good For Weight Loss?
Coleslaw can be a great crisp and creamy side dish that offers vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants! With the ingredients used it can often be a lower carb dish. You can always swap out the mayo with Greek yogurt for added protein if you want. I personally prefer the mayo in the dish, it offers a really nice creamy texture.
Can You Freeze Coleslaw Mix?
So you bought a bag of coleslaw and only used part of it. Now what? If you have the coleslaw still alone without other ingredients, you can seal up your coleslaw cabbage mix and freeze it. Just get all the air out and place in freezer bag for up to 2 months.
The mayonnaise in coleslaw can separate and break down in the freezing process. But just freezing the cabbage alone will work. I always use leftover coleslaw mix to pour into beef stews and such. It adds so much flavor to your soup.
How Long Will Homemade Coleslaw Keep In The Fridge?
You can expect coleslaw to last 3-4 days. With each day you will find your cabbage in the coleslaw begins to break down and become more tender.
How To Make Lemon Pepper Coleslaw
Start by mixing up your coleslaw dressing. Just put the mayonnaise, dill, and lemon pepper into a bowl. Give it a good whisk until nice and creamy.
Top with coleslaw mix, and give it a nice stir.
Next, add in those glorious sunflower seeds for that added crunch. Once it is well-combined toss in the fridge for 30 minutes minimum. We generally leave it in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours. I find it blends the flavors even more.
Then squeeze fresh lime juice on top and top with your pepper and salt and serve!

Can I Use Fresh Dill In Replace To Dry In Dill Coleslaw
Absolutely! Feel free to swap out the dried dill for fresh. Just dice and toss in like you normally would stir and enjoy.
Can I Use A Whole Head of Cabbage Instead of Bagged Coleslaw for Lemon Dill Coleslaw
You sure can use a whole head of cabbage over bagged coleslaw mix. I personally love the pre-packaged mix for easy prep, but also I love it has the carrots and red cabbage as well. Just slice and dice your head, add in some shaved carrots and do a mix of red and green cabbage if you want.
