Fennel and Carrot Slaw
Don’t get me wrong, I love coleslaw. In fact I love cabbage so even a nice dressed cabbage salad hits the spot for me but today isn’t all about me. it’s about trying new things and this fennel and carrot slaw sounds like something I might want to try. Did I just make it about me again?  Spicy, sweet, and tart with the flavors of green olives accenting the fresh, raw veggies. this is both complex and refreshing on the palate and would be a wonderful accompaniment to grilled seafood and spicy pork dishes.
This is a challenging recipe to pair with wine so my advice would be to pair your main dish with the wine or else just try and pair the two most assertive flavors here: green olive and fennel. That sounds like southern Italian white wine to be, though Sauvignon Blanc could fit in here as well. That being said I’m sticking with Italy and suggesting a nice Falanghina, with it’s floral and sweetly fruity aromatics and nice, crisp mouthfeel it’s a perfect partner for the complex flavors of this slaw.
Two to try:
