How Long Does Cole Slaw Last?
Coleslaw is one of those tasty recipes that is easy to make and bulk and serve with several meals. Leftover slaw can easily be added to the next night's meal and it is even tasty on some sandwiches! If you're keeping leftover slaw in the fridge, it should last about 3-5 days depending on the freshness of your ingredients. After that, we recommend making a new batch to ensure that the dish and tasty and safe to eat!

If you're serving coleslaw at your party, it lasts a smaller amount of time when sitting at room temperature. Once coleslaw has been out for more than 2 hours, it is time to toss it. We recommend slipping it into the fridge once your guests have gone for seconds to ensure that it keeps.

This issue has come up publically before. Do not worry about the mayo -- commercial mayo is loaded with preservatives and will not spoil under normal picnic use. It is ONIONS that spoil, so leave them out.a comment...

Coleslaw is a big favorite during bbq season. However, I always worry about the mayo going bad. Now I have some options without mayo that I am sure my family will love!

Love the German Coleslaw recipe. It reminds me of my grandma Irma who was from Germany. She made great coleslaw and the best German potato salad!

Yum! I can't wait to try the southern slaw recipe.

I didn't always like coleslaw, but now that I do, I'm excited to try out all these different recipes. I think I'll start with the Vinegar Coleslaw, since I prefer those kinds to the creamy coleslaw varieties. Thanks!

I'm not a huge fan of coleslaw, but my family loves it. I think they'll love the freezer slaw!
