Fennel Celery Pear Slaw

Our newest concoction nicknamed Yumminess Slaw came about from us being in an adventurous mood and finding a great deal on fennel bulbs. Until now, we'd only ever used fennel seeds in tea to aid in calming colic when the kids were babies. Over the summer with our oldest working at our local farmers market, they learned more about the fennel plant. Did you know that the whole plant from bulb root to flowery end and everything in between is edible?

I didn't. And it is delicious! This slaw was inspired by trying to put a twist on a waldorf salad since we can't do a traditional one. It makes a great light side dish.
