Zesty Vinegar Coleslaw

The neat thing about adding hot salad dressing to shredded cabbage is that it wilts the greens just slightly for a wonderfully tender-crunchy texture. The dressing combines sugar, oil, and cider vinegar with pungent turmeric to put a spunky and colorful kick into an old picnic favorite.

Turmeric adds a pungent flavor and a deep yellow color. It can be found in the spice section of your grocery store.
