1/2 tsp cracked black peppercorns

2 Granny Smith or MacIntosh apples, peeled*
The other half of the lemon (1.5 Tbsp)*
1 small head of fennel
3-4 green onions, sliced
1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)

*Tip: As soon as you peel the apples, pour and rub lemon juice on them to prevent browning


  1. Shred the cabbage, carrots, apples and fennel into a large bowl. Add green onions and half of the bacon (if using). Save the other half of the bacon as a garnish.
  2. Next, pour dressing over slaw mixture and toss til well combined. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Refrigerate slaw for at least an hour (overnight is better but not necessary). Serve with pulled pork or chicken sandwiches and the extra bacon.
