Cook's Notes

After chopping the cabbage, Chris sprinkles it with a teaspoon of salt and lets it sit for a few hours to draw out the excess water. Unsalted cabbage will leech water into the dressing, making the slaw overly wet and separating the dressing from the greens.

    I've made this many times over the years and people always love it. It holds up well during a party and it's a nice twist on a common dish.

    The seasonings for this cole slaw make this a novelty. I love the fennel and green apple together. It held up well for a picnic - very light and refreshing.

    This coleslaw is just as delicious with dill too, BTW.

    This is my go to coleslaw recipe cuz it's got nothing to do with mayonnaise! It's just a great combination of flavors to which I also like to add radishes and grated carrot for extra color and pop of flavor.
