Greenmarket Recipe: Fennel and Celery Slaw

Greenmarket Recipe: Fennel and Celery Slaw

This tender, crisp, mayonnaise-free slaw goes great with seafood and pork, and leftovers make a great base for a lunchtime salad.

With its crisp, crunchy texture, sweet fennel, peppery radish and tangy dressing, this slaw makes the perfect side for your next juicy pork tenderloin. At least, that’s what’s on this family’s dinner menu tonight.


But on its own? Gag city.

This fennel and celery slaw, however, is clean and bright. Nothing but raw, fresh vegetables from your local farmers market, a little apple cider vinegar, whole grain mustard and a touch of honey.


I also love that this recipe calls for the celery leaves and fennel fronds. I’m always on the lookout for recipes that help me use the whole vegetable to ease my guilt over food waste.
