Cabbage and fennel are first seared in a skillet to lock in caramelized flavor, and then sliced and tossed with spicy green chilies, caraway seeds and orange segments to make a zesty and piquant slaw.


  • 1 bulb fennel
  • 1/4 head red cabbage
  • 1/4 head cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 green chilies diced
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • segments of 2 oranges


  1. Place the olive oil into a skillet over medium-high heat. Once it begins to shimmer, add the cabbage and the fennel to the pan and sear on all sides until light brown. Set the vegetables aside on a clean countertop and then slice each into long strips once cool enough to handle.
  2. Place the cabbage, fennel, orange segments and a few pinches of salt and pepper into a bowl and toss to combine. Add the sour cream, caraway seeds, red pepper flakes, chilies, and cilantro, and toss the mixture once more to mix.
