Recipe Notes //

This fennel cabbage slaw is a great side dish that’s fresh, light, and super yummy! I like to and encourage you to shave your cabbages and fennel by using a mandolin or food processor! This way, the cabbages stay fresh and hydrating versus the relatively dry and flavorless cabbage that comes in the kits at a grocery store!


Fennel Cabbage Slaw With Grainy Mustard Vinaigrette


Units Scale

For Slaw:

  • 3 cups Red Cabbage
  • 3 cups Green Cabbage
  • 1 cups Fennel
  • 2 Tbsp Fennel Fronds

For Vinaigrette:

  • 2 Tbsp Grainy Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinager
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice


Begin by shredding all of your vegetables using a mandolin. I prefer my vegetables on the thinner side so I shred mine using the lowest setting. Next, add appraximately 1/4 Cups of the grainy mustard vinaigrette to the mixture and toss. Top with the fennel fronds and add any additional dressing if you would like.
