Sweet Saffron French Dressing Recipe
This recipe might sound very unusual if you are used to traditional salad dressing recipes but you must taste this to believe it. If you are adventurous enough to make this saffron French dressing recipe with chocolate, you will find it exciting, rich, and surprisingly good.
This dressing thickens when it is refrigerated so give it a good stir before you serve it. It is lovely served over mixed greens with sweet onion rings, fresh sliced mushrooms, and mandarin segments. You can swap the mandarin segments for fresh orange segments if you like. The slight bitterness of the orange is lovely with the saffron. If you want, you can leave out the chocolate and pistachios and serve the resulting French dressing recipe over mixed leaves and fruit.
Another idea is to drizzle this dressing over a plate of fruit. Choose a combination of tart fruit like Granny Smith green apples and grapefruit, along with sweeter ones like peach slices and pineapple chunks. Serve small plates of salad with this saffron French dressing recipe for an unusual and mouthwatering appetizer if you have guests over. They will never be able to guess the ingredients in the dressing but one thing is for sure – they will love it.
