Broccoli and Fennel Slaw

Broccoli and Fennel Slaw.jpg

I am obsessed with slaw. I love the crunch, and favor dressing my slaws with a vinegary dressing for a palate cleansing punch. I pile them on the sandwich for added texture and flavor as well as serve them as a side. I change the slaws around according to mood, season and on-hand ingredients. Here is one of my favorites. This slaw is a great way to use the broccoli stems!!

  • 5 or 6 large broccoli stems, trimmed with vegetable peeler to expose white interior, shredded in food processor
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 small red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 small fennel bulb (white bulb only, save stems and fronds for garnish), cored, shredded in food processor


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 3 teaspoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup best quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. First make Aioli by placing egg yolks, mustard, water and lemon juice in a food processor or non-reactive stainless steel mixing bowl or a glass bowl. Pulse or whisk together until smooth. Slowly add oil drop by drop into the bowl while continually whisking or processing. The mixture should resemble mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2. Toss the shredded vegetables with some of the aioli until lightly dressed. 

Store leftover aioli in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
