A note about serious food allergies

Sugar snap peas add fresh crispness to this delicious summer slaw. The lemon and brown sugar dressing keeps it tangy and light, which pairs nicely with the fresh salmon. We bet that, after a taste, you'll never rely on heavy mayonnaise based slaws again.

    Prep the Vegetables

    Cut the green stalk off the top of the fennel bulb, save some of the fronds for garnish, discard the rest. Slice the bulb in ½ and cut the bulb into very thin julienne strips (matchsticks). Cut the ends of the sugar snap peas. Slice the peas on a bias into thin strips. Peel the red onion and slice in half. Cut the halves into thin julienne strip (matchsticks). You will only need half the red onion so reserve the other half for a later date. Slice the lemons in half. Chop the garlic.
