Fennel Slaw with Garlic Dressing

Fennel Slaw with Garlic Dressing, Kiku Corner 3

Fennel is such a strange vegetable, all fibrous like celery but spicy like anise, and I never really gave it much thought. A few weeks ago Meinhilde brought home some fennel from her market, and I had no choice but to find a good recipe. This was also the same time that I rediscovered my love for crunchy slaws and was eager to try out a new variation, so I made this fennel slaw with garlic dressing.

Although I’m adventurous in my salad creations, I usually stick to a few great dressing recipes. This garlicky one goes with almost everything. Like other slaws, this salad is best made in advance to allow flavours to mingle and keeps well for a few days in the fridge.
