    A jolly nice coleslaw what was devoured by the dozen workers on the station that I served it to. The raisins make a delicious addition in both taste and texture. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap July 2013

    I used the dried cranberries. The taste is very good after a few hours. I also like that it's low in calorie. Thanks Paula. Made for Alphabet tag game.

    Yummy coleslaw - I loved that it didn't have a lot of mayo and that it was low fat, low calorie. I used the dried cranberries to add color - which made for a very interesting combination with the dill, it was great! Will make again, thanks for sharing!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
