Kohlrabi-Apple Citrus SlawKohlrabi is one of those overlooked, underutilized vegetables. It has a fabulous crunchy texture and a flavor somewhere between a cabbage and broccoli. Occasionally I can find purple kohlrabi at the farmer's market. This is one of my favorite "slaws" that keeps well in the fridge for up to 3 days. The acid from the lime and orange juice substitute for vinegar. If you are looking for a flavorful, refreshing salad, this is it! This recipe makes about 6-8 servings.
2 kohlrabi bulbs, peeled
2 apples, preferably super crispy ones like Honeycrisp
3-4 scallions, chopped
2 T chopped cilantro
1/2 T honey (or sugar)
1. Slice the kohlrabi and apples into 3 inch long matchsticks and place in a bowl.
2. Zest the lime and the orange into the bowl. Add the scallions and cilantro.
3. In a small bowl, squeeze the juice from the lime and half the orange. Mix in the honey (or sugar).
4. Pour over salad mixture and toss thoroughly to mix.
