Can it be frozen to be used later?

Reply

    Sharon FitzpatrickWednesday 6th May 2020

    Hi Gary, thanks for getting in touch. This Coleslaw recipe isn’t suitable for freezing as the raw vegetables would become mushy. It can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days.

I hate quark….can you taste it in this recipe or is it for consistency?

Reply

    Holly LevellTuesday 19th May 2020

    Hi Yvonne, the quark is for the consistency to the Coleslaw so you shouldn’t be able to pick that flavour out when the Coleslaw is finished. Hope that helps!

Do i use greek yogurt or natural yogurt

Reply

    Emma TMonday 1st July 2019

    Hi Mandy,

    You could use either, greek yoghurt tends to be thicker so it might need loosening with a little water or milk ????
