Holiday Feast: Apple Fennel Cabbage Slaw

This is the final side dish in our Holiday Feast series for Christmas 2020 - wow! In case you haven't seen our other recipes in this series yet, here they are:

The last side slash salad we served at our annual Christmas Feast was our Apple Fennel Cabbage Slaw. We knew we wanted a bit more of a creamy, crunchy, zesty side so we decided to create a Apple Fennel Cabbage Slaw, but since we love all things citrus and zesty, we created our very own dressing as well. This recipe is so easy and can be prepared the morning of your lunch or dinner, and the dressing can be prepared a few days in advance. It's very easy (always a win in our humble opinion) but most importantly, it's essential to create some texture alongside all these other sides we've created to compliment each other, and of course, our sumptuous Maple & Orange Glazed Ham. Read on for the recipe.
