Does anyone dehydrate coleslaw already mixed with sauce? What's the texture like when rehydrated?

Fresh cabbage will last quite awhile if you want to go that way. Otherwise here is a great recipe for coleslaw and dehydrating it. Backpacker coleslaw

Traditional cole slaw generally contains too much fat for dehydrating. The "campers cole slaw" recipe above looks like a good alternative.

Shredded cabbage, by itself with no dressing, is great for dehydrating.

You can also use Broccoli Slaw. Here's a recipe for that:Dehydrated Asian Broccoli Noodle Slaw
Adapted from Allrecipes
Vegan

Ingredients:

•12 ounce package broccoli coleslaw mix (I used Trader Joe’s organic)
•3 ounce package Top Ramen Oriental Flavored Ramen Noodles (other ramen noodles may not be vegan)
•1 bunch green onions
•1/2 cup unsalted peanuts
•1/2 cup unsalted raw sunflower kernels
•1/4 cup white sugar
•2 tablespoons vegetable oil
•3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Directions:

At Home

1.For even dehydrating, slice the green part of the green onions and finely chop the white part. Spread out green onion and broccoli slaw on separate trays of the dehydrator. Set dehydrator to 135 degrees. Once vegetables are dry (about 4 hours), put them in an air-tight container or zip top bag.
2.To make dressing, combine sugar, oil and apple cider vinegar. Store dressing in a leakproof container.
3.Put peanuts and sunflower seeds in a separate container or zip top bag.
At Camp

1.A few hours before serving, add enough water to dehydrated green onions and broccoli slaw to cover.
2.Once the vegetables are rehydrated, pour off the excess water.
3.Take the bag of ramen noodles and crunch it up. Add ramen noodles to the vegetables. Add ramen flavoring packet to the dressing. Shake or stir the dressing.
4.Add peanuts, sunflower seeds and dressing to vegetable noodle mixture. Shake or stir to combine
