Sweet Balsamic Fennel Salad

You might know fennel for its flavorful seeds, often embedded in breads (think: rye) and sausages. But the underground bulb of this versatile veggie is another edible part with spicy-sweet taste that’s enjoyed cooked or raw — such as in this crunchy, colorful salad. Mixed with shredded green or purple cabbage and thinly sliced red onion, then tossed with a zesty, citrus-balsamic dressing, it’s a side dish that rivals any vinegar-based or creamy coleslaw that’s ever graced your plate.

For distinct, rich flavor, try Boinaturae Balsamic Vinegar, made from certified organic grapes.
