Refreshing and easy. The subtle fennel flavor classes up an otherwise average summer picnic dish. It's cole slaw for those who don't usually like it! Save some fennel leaves for garnishing. Especially delicious with grilled tuna steaks.

This vinegar-based slaw is an easy way to start a meal. Very refreshing in the summer! Pairs great with fish, dishes with avocado, and Central and South American dishes. Try apple cider vinegar or white vinegar for variations in flavor. Can be served immediately or marinated in the refrigerator overnight for a more pickled taste.
