If you want to eat it like salad, I'd say definitely no. If you're going to reduce it for a recipe or sautee it, then it should freeze just fine.

I don't know if this works or not, but I've heard blanching it (boiling in water for about 3 minutes) helps.

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

I will buy some tommorow and put it my freezer to find out for you.

Give me a couple of days and I will let you know what happens

Yep what I was thinking. It will go slimey and not be crisp when you dethaw it but wet. That's probally okay if you're going to cook it, as that's pretty much what cooking does anyway, but if you wanted to eat it like salad than I'd say a big ol' no.
