Adding fennel to coleslaw gives this simple side a boost of flavor. My Easy Coleslaw with Fennel will brighten up your summer picnic or barbecue.
My husband's family will snack on raw sliced fennel. They even call it by the Italian word for it, "finocchio." I'm not a big fan of the flavor of black licorice but the mild flavor of it in raw fennel is refreshing. I started adding fennel to my coleslaw years ago when I tried this recipe from Food Network's Melissa D'Arabian and have continued to do so ever since.
One of my favorite uses for my food processor is shredded veggies. It's hard to get them thin enough when slicing by hand. I like the cabbage and fennel very thin in coleslaw. I've had my Cuisinart Food Processor for about 10 years and it is still going strong.
I've enjoyed this Easy Coleslaw with Fennel as a side dish and condiment. It is really good in low carb wraps with some bbq chicken or pork. The wrap shown above is a Coconut Flour Wrap from Lotsa Little Lambs.
