Fresh fennel slaw brightens the Thanksgiving table
November 22, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

So many traditional Thanksgiving foods are rich and heavy, it’s a good idea to balance things by also serving something fresh and light.

So we blended thinly sliced fresh fennel and dried apricots with a vinegary yogurt-mayonnaise dressing to create a slaw that is both hearty enough to stand up to the other Thanksgiving dishes, but fresh and light enough to not add to the weight of the meal.
