Fennel-Apple Slaw

Fennel-Apple Slaw
This vibrant seasonal salad is an ideal way to showcase your favorite apples--just be sure to use ones that are super crisp, tart, and sweet, and keep the peels on to add color and texture. Can't find fennel? Three ribs of thinly sliced celery make a good substitute in a pinch.
