Fennel Cabbage Slaw
1 fennel bulb, core removed, cut into quarters and sliced very thinly, fonds reserved
1 cup thinly slices purple cabbage
2 green onions, chopped
2 strips bacon, cooked chrisp and chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
3 tablespoons chopped fennel fonds
1 teaspoon honey
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Toss the fennel, cabbage, onions, and bacon together in a medium bowl. Whisk the mayo, vinegar, fennel fonds, honey and salt and pepper, to taste, in a small bowl. Add the dressing to the slaw and toss to coat.
Fennel has a mild anise-like flavour, but is more aromatic and sweeter. It is a highly aromatic and flavorful herb with culinary and medicinal uses.
