Why I Love This Recipe

Normally, I roast fennel, but this is great to make when it's a bit warmer out, I decided that a cool coleslaw would be perfect with shredded fennel. I’m not big on the mayo drenched type of colesaw, but this has a bit of nayonaise (yes, you can use regular mayo if you want).

Ingredients You'll Need

1 fennel bulb, with stems cut off, but keep some of the fronds
1 small green cabbage, with outer leaves removed
1 large carrot, peeled
1 lemon
1 tablespoon anise seeds
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
3 tablespoons mayonnaises
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of mustard
dash of hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste


If you have a food processor, get it out now and use it to shred the cabbage, fennel and carrots. If not, chop everything up finely or use a mandoline. I ended up using only half of my cabbage because it was huge, but if you get a small enough cabbage, you could use the whole thing - use your judgment. Place all of the veggies in a large bowl and squeeze a whole lemon over the top and mix it all up.

Meanwhile, toast the anise and fennel seeds in a small frying pan on medium. Keep an eye on them, as they toast quickly and you don't want them burnt. Combine with veggies.

Combine the mayonnaises, vinegars, mustard, hotsauce in a small bowl and whisk it all together. Pour over the slaw and use hands (clean) to coat the vegetables or give a few good stirs with a spoon. Chill for an hour in the fridge. The slaw can be kept for up to a day or so and the fennel gives the cabbage a great bite. I suggest bringing this to your next picnic because it makes plenty for sharing.
