Low-carb fennel slaw

Print this recipe
Coleslaw is a favorite side to go with meaty dishes like barbecued ribs or pulled pork. The recipe below includes fresh fennel bulb along with the usual cabbage. There’s no sugar in the dressing, but the fennel adds a nice sweetness to balance out the tang of apple cider vinegar.
This is an ideal make-ahead dish for a summer cookout or picnic because it gets even better after sitting in the fridge overnight. Add a shredded carrot and/or thinly sliced red onion for a bit more color. You may never go back to your classic coleslaw recipe.
