The licorice-flavored fennel, the tart apples, and the slightly sweet, tangy olives combine to make a refreshingly crisp salad, a creative alternative to traditional cabbage slaw.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place fennel seeds in a small nonstick skillet, and cook over medium heat 1 minute or until toasted. Place fennel seeds in a spice or coffee grinder; process until finely ground.

Step 2

Combine ground seeds, lemon juice, oil, olives, pepper, and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add fennel bulb and apple, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with chopped fennel fronds; top with cheese. Garnish with fennel fronds, if desired.

This is the BEST idea for St Patrick's Day salad! Lovely green fennel fronds, pale greenish-white, licorice-y fennel bulb, wonderfully sweet-tart green GrannySmith apple & those indulgently salty green olives! It's a party in your mouth & a terrific, tangy-sweet compliment to the mellow richness of an Irish Stew or the savory saltiness of Corned Beef and Cabbage.
