Can you freeze a tub of reser's potato and egg salad?

They were 2 for 5 at the store and my SO bought two.

It's just me eating it and I'm not going to be able to finish two of them off in the next week or so!

  • You could freeze it, but I don't think you would want to eat it when it defrosts.

  • I don't think I would. I think the texture would be very different when it thaws, and the water that will surely be in it after it thaws would water it down too much for my taste.

  • IME those mayo based salads do not thaw well. They are no longer creamy... just kinda watery and greasy.

  • The potatoes will get mushy and soggy. I trie freezing some years ago and wouldn't recommend it.

  • Mayo freezes fine. Eggs and potatoes: not so much. Both will go black, and eggs get bitter (so do onions) in the freezer.

    I wouldn't do it.
