Fennel Slaw With Fresh Dill

ImageWhenever I make pulled pork, and my recipe for that will be posted soon, in fact, I think I already put up a pic of it’s close up, I have to have some kind of slaw. This slaw recipe is so easy and you can pretty much change it up however you like. I love the freshness of fennel. I start with half a head of green cabbage, and slice it very thinly. Then I slice one bulb of fennel using my mandolin and around 1/4 of a red onion. i toss all of this into a large bowl mixing the different ingredients together.Image

At this point I make the dressing and I usually keep it separate and only mix together what I’m going to use for that particular dish. I do it this way so the cabbage stays fresh and doesn’t get that soggy feel to it, if you just mix everything all at once. Now in another bowl, I put 1/2 a cup of good mayonnaise, to that I add 4 tablespoons of sugar, 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt, and 1/2 a teaspoon of black pepper. I also add 1 tablespoon of celery seed, 1 tablespoon of caraway seeds, and finally 1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin.  I whisk all of these ingredients together really well. and then I transfer it all to a jar with a tight fitting lid. I do this so when I’m ready to dress the slaw I can shake it all up in the jar and just spoon on as much as I need at the time, and then toss it through the cabbage and other ingredients.Image

To finish I chop of some fresh dill and sprinkle it all over the top. This slaw recipe goes perfectly with pulled pork or really just anytime you just have a craving for some great slaw.2014-03-24 16.38.57
