    I made this 25 years ago, known then as Chicken Cabbage salad – great diet salad also. I have never froze it and don’t think it would be good to do so

      I don’t think it would be advisable, I think the crunchy noodles would get soft. I think it would be edible, it just wouldn’t as nice crisp and fresh as it would the first time it was served.
