Scandinavian Fennel, Apple Cole Slaw

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Sharon123

This slaw stays crisp because the vegetables are sliced, not grated. You will be carried away with the buttermilk/caraway combination dressing. Adapted from Moosewood Restaurant New Classics cookbook. Cook time is chill time.
