Apple Fennel Slaw with Orange Cumin Dressing

I discovered a couple things from this recipe.  Greek Yogurt makes a pretty darn good substitute for mayonnaise IF you are adding some punchy flavors to it….like cumin, coriander, and orange juice & zest.  That’s exactly what makes up the delicious dressing for this Apple Fennel Slaw.

I also discovered that no matter how many ways I prepare it, B is not going to eat fruit.  So Apple Fennel Slaw with Orange Cumin Dressing made a lovely side dish with our Oven Fried Chicken.  And I had plenty leftover for my lunch the next day.

Recipe note:  I would not recommend preparing more than four hours ahead of serving.  The dressing flavor became a little over powering by the next day.  If you must prepare ahead, wait to toss the fennel mixture in the dressing until just before serving.
