How long does homemade coleslaw last?

Homemade coleslaw will last up to 3 days in the fridge. I don’t like to let it sit in the fridge for longer than that because I find it starts to become soggy. Additionally, it’s better to make smaller batches and make it more often.

How should I store homemade coleslaw?

Store homemade coleslaw in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. I like to make coleslaw fresh and eat most of it as I don’t think it tastes as good the longer it sits around.
