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! 

Try this recipe for coleslaw as a side salad for your BBQ, dinner party or to go with your favourite meats or fish. It is such a versatile recipe to have around. It has become my ‘go-to’ salad to bring along when you are asked to a party for many people. Just vary the quantity and you will have everyone coming back for more. 

Coleslaw with Zingy Saffron Dressing
Serves 2
Lean, mean zingy coleslaw that fills you with goodness. The dressing makes it special and a bit luxurious - so much more than 'just' a coleslaw.
