  • A medium-large fennel bulb
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tsp. dill mustard
  • 1 tsp. mayo
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Wash and cut away the fronds from the bulb. Save some of the greens from the fronds to mix into your slaw. You can also place a little wisp on top if you're serving in it a bowl.
  • Chop your fennel into small pieces to fit in a food processor. Grind until nicely chopped. Make sure not to chop too much. You don’t want it to be mush.
  • Remove chopped fennel and let sit in a bowl for about 5 minutes. It will begin to release fennel juice.
  • Grind your carrot just as you ground your fennel.
  • Spoon fennel into cheese cloth and squeeze out as much juice as you can and place in a mixing bowl with your chopped carrot.
  • Add mustard, mayo and sugar, and mix.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
