Fennel Slaw {#PicnicGame}

With an unusual stretch of pleasant weekends here in DC, we’ve been getting really good use out of our picnic blanket. (Even laying it out to watch the USA match on the big screen at Mosaic District Monday night — so fun!)

Today we are celebrating International Picnic Day by bringing you a basket packed with goodies from A to Z, in the style of the picnic game! Drop by the Sunday Supper Movement to see the whole picnic spread out on our virtual blanket.

I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing…
Asian Chicken Salad from Try Anything Once Culinary
Beautiful Beet Salad from Small Wallet, Big Appetite
Chicken Muffuletta from Marlene Baird
Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups from The Dinner-Mom
Elote from Peaceful Cooking

and

Fennel Slaw!

This tangy, cool salad is a perfect complement to grilled fish or chicken. The foodie tot joined me in the kitchen to whisk together the yogurt dressing and assemble the salad. While she’s no fan of yogurt on its own, she agreed that the finished dressing was tasty and even took a few bites of the salad at dinner. More proof that kids who cook are more likely to try something new. And serving up new foods in a fun and laid back setting, like a picnic, is even better!

Recipe: Fennel Slaw

Makes 4-6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 bulbs fennel, core removed and thinly sliced
  • 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup red grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:

1. Place sliced onion in a bowl of water and let soak for 10 minutes, while preparing salad. (This helps take the bite off.)
2. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, vinegar, honey and salt. Set aside.
3. Drain onions and pat dry. Gently toss fennel, onion and dressing in a separate bowl. Fold in cut grapes. Chill until ready to serve.

    I always need a good fennel recipe! This fennel slaw is going to make an appearance at one of our picnics this summer. :)

    Your little helper is just adorable! Reminds me fondly of the days when my girls were always in the kitchen with me. They are both creative and competent cooks and bakers now so it was time well spent.

    I love fennel in salad but hardly ever think to use it. Must rectify that by making your beautiful dish, Colleen!

    I absolutely LOVE the cool, crispness of fennel in a slaw, but I’ve never had it as the main component. I NEED to add this to my must-make list for the summer, it sounds delicious! Thanks so much for adding this to the picnic basket :) .

    I never know what to do with the fennel in our CSA so this is a great idea! Definitely trying it next time!

    This looks like a fantastic slaw! I love the yogurt dressing!

    This slaw is right up my alley! I need to make some for our next bbq!

    My bf says he doesn’t like slaw, but I have gotten him to admit he likes it when I make it. So I am always on the look out for new ones to make. This one sounds wonderful!
