Fennel Slaw Recipe

Last Update: September 28, 2022

At summer barbecues and backyard picnics, a bright shaved-fennel salad trumps goopy cole slaw any day. The freshness of the lemon tones down the anise flavor of the fennel, while parmesan adds savory saltiness. Pro tip: This dish pairs beautifully with grilled chicken kebabs
