Refreshing Pink Lady® Apple & fennel pickle

Sep 21, 2021 | Salad as a side, Sides & salads

A flavourful dressing can add a punch of flavour to any fresh ingredients. The vinegar and oil mixture with honey, herbs and mustard is a delicious combination. Leaving the apple, fennel and cabbage in this dressing, allows them to pickle slightly. This fresh acidity combined with Pink Lady® Apples creates a perfectly balanced side dish to elevate any meal.
