A warm weather salad for sure…creamy, tangy, crunchy and slightly sweet – what more could you ask for?



4 Serves*
1 small fennel, thinly sliced
handful of dill and/or mint, picked and chopped
1/4 savoy cabbage, shredded
1 carrot, grated
1 apple, grated
1/4 onion, grated
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp chives, chopped
1 tsp salt
*Serving size calculator is approximate, feel free to adjust by adding a pinch here and there as needed


  1. To make the dressing, whisk buttermilk, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, chives, salt, and pepper. Add grated onion and apple to the dressing and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the fennel, cabbage, carrot and mint. Add the buttermilk dressing and toss. Serve with a steak, a schnitzel or even on a great burger!

Easy Swap

Use pear instead of apple. You could make this with red or green cabbage or a combination!

Top Tips

Tossing the vegetables with a pinch of salt before dressing them helps to soften and break them down without losing their crunch. Alternatively after you have dressed the salad, let it sit for a few minutes for it to break down and the flavours to amalgamate.
