Recipe for Coleslaw with Zingy Saffron Dressing – Health and Taste guarantee
Cabbage is one of those favourites as it consumes more calories when the body processes it, than it actually contains in itself. And add to that carrots for betacarotine, onion for zing, and raisins for natural sweetness. The dressing came about as I wanted something a bit different. The saffron made the whole coleslaw sing with zing!
