Fennel and Cabbage Slaw CSA Haul Recipe

Looking for a way to up the ante on your classic slaw recipe? This version features fennel bulbs which are perfectly in season this time of year and add a nice kick to the dish. Fennel seeds are often used to season Italian bratwursts, so this fennel slaw is a great pairing for those summertime grill outs.

Not only is this super fast to make, if you end up just using a food processor, you only have to dirty up one dish! Bring this to the next cookout you attend and we promise it’ll be a hit!
