What makes this rabe, fennel, & apple slaw special?
This slaw is winter and spring season friendly, has my favorite dressing, and utilizes broccoli rabe. Also, we are utilizing the entire broccoli rabe & fennel. Also, reducing waste is a huge priority for me. That’s why I meal plan! One way to reduce waste is by using ALL the parts of your produce. So, in this slaw we are using not just the broccoli rabe florets. First, cut off your broccoli rabe florets. Then, shave the stem with a vegetable peeler. Next, add it to your slaw, and enjoying it equally.
