Leftover turkey with celeriac and fennel slaw

There is always turkey leftover after Christmas. So to bring a bit of excitement to Boxing Day lunch, make this apple, fennel and celeriac slaw from Paul Ainsworth. It is a terrific side, easy to make and should ensure that everyone is delighted to see the turkey again.
