Cabbage-Fennel Slaw with Cilantro

This light, fresh side dish is wonderful served alongside this week’s Southwestern-style beans.

Ingredients:
½-1 head Savoy cabbage, cored and very thinly sliced
1 fennel bulb, trimmed of fronds, cored and very thinly sliced
2-3 carrots, coarsely grated
¾ cup freshly-chopped cilantro
½ cup sour cream or crème fraîche
½ cup milk
Juice from 1 lime or lemon
Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste

Method:
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream or crème fraîche with milk and lime juice. Season to taste with fresh ground pepper.

2. In a separate bowl, combine cabbage, fennel, carrots and cilantro. Drizzle with dressing, tossing to coat. Season with more pepper as desired and salt to taste.
