YIELD: 4 TO 6 SERVINGS
With its refreshing crispness and delicate liquorice flavour, fennel is wonderful when it’s raw.
And since oranges and orange juice are its best friends, it’s no surprise that it works so well in a
light citrus vinaigrette—mixed with some shredded carrots for an extra pop of colour (and a dose
of vitamin A). I like to serve this slaw alongside grilled pork chops.
