I found this unusual recipe in cook book "The Cook and The Butcher." We both love fennel and this is a nice, different, refreshing salad.

How to Make Fennel-Parsley Slaw

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon zest and the juice and oregano. Add salt and season with pepper. Whisk in the oil and mayonnaise.
  • 2Trim the stalks from the fennel bulbs and discard. Quarter each bulb and trim away the triangle of core at the base. Cut the quarters crosswise as thinly as possible.
  • 3Add the fennel, parsley, and bell pepper to the bowl and toss to coat all the ingredients evenly.
  • 4Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 hour, then toss again just before serving.
  • 5I found it was just as good the next day as leftovers. As you can see by the picture I did not have red bell pepper so I used green.
