Apple Fennel Cole Slaw Salad

Apple Fennel Salad

I have never really made anything with fennel but I was reading through a few recipes and the flavor profile and it sounded very interesting. I am a fan of making all sorts of sides and feel that a salad is usually a very welcoming side for many dishes. Cole slaw is a very refreshing salad and usually has some sort of sweetness in the recipe.  That is where the apple comes into this recipe.

This recipe is quite tasty and I am looking forward to experimenting with it and possibly adding a few additional ingredients to play around with the flavor. This recipe was the first run and it was very good, but I want to make it a little tastier.

If any of you do make the recipe, please give me some feedback and also some ideas on possible additions or changes to the recipe would be very appreciated.

Ideas: I would like to add some actual celery to slaw as well as I enjoy that flavor. Cucumbers are also delicious and may be a great addition to the salad as they are light in flavor but would blend well. Thinly sliced radishes would add a nice tang.
