This is the perfect slaw for Green Goddess dressing. Fennel is a delicious alternative giving this a slightly sweeter, milder taste than the traditional cabbage. You have all your GREENS together with an accent of red.
3 celery stalks, thickly sliced diagonally, plus 1.4 cup loosely packed celery leaves
2 small fennel bulbs, thinly sliced crosswise plus 1 tablespoon chopped fennel fronds
1 firm apple (such as Pink Lady, Granny Smith, or Gala) julienned
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro or parsley
1/2 cup green goddess dressing
1/2 red pepper thinly sliced
Combine the first three salad ingredients and 1 tablespoon of the herb and toss with dressing.
Garnish with sliced red pepper and the remaining tablespoon of cilantro or flat leaf parsley and serve.
FOOD TIP: After preparing the mayonnaise add the ingredients for the green goddess dressing right into your blender. Use some for this salad and refrigerate the rest to use as a dip, or for another salad or to serve with fish, meat or chicken.
