Italian Cabbage and Fennel Salad

This salad is so simple but has the most adorable flavour. The crunchy cabbage and fennel surrounded by a smooth velvety dressing makes for a wonderful taste sensation. This salad can be served with many dishes and also makes a great replacement for coleslaw.




1 small bulb fennel, sliced

1/2 head small white cabbage, shredded

1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil

3 tablespoons capers

Handful chopped black olives

4 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and pepper to season


Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl being sure that all the ingredients are well mixed.

Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes allowing for the flavours to develop and the cabbage and fennel to soften.
