Why We Like It

If you have never had kohlrabi, this is just one ideal way to enjoy this incredibly good coleslaw-like salad!  It is a member of the cabbage family and has a delicious crunch -- it can be eaten raw, or cooked and added to stir fry dishes, or even made into Chile Kohlrabi Fries!

Shred the Veggies:

  • 2 large kohlrabi (or 4 small kohlrabi, peeled and cut into large chunks)
  • 2 large carrots (peeled if desired and cut into large chunks)
  • 2 apples (peeled if desired and cut into large chunks)

Add to a food processor and shred until they are a coarse, coleslaw-like, consistency.  Place in a large bowl.

Toast the Sunflower Seeds:

  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds

Add to a small dry skillet over medium heat.  Cook for about 2 minutes until toasted and fragrant.  Let cool slightly, and then add to the bowl with the veggies.

Make the Dressing:

  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (juice from one large lemon)
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 1 Tbsp stone ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Add to a mason jar or small bowl and stir or shake to combine.  Pour some of the dressing over the salad and toss to combine.  Add more or all of the dressing if desired.

Serve and Enjoy!

  • 2 Tbsp fresh chives (chopped)

Serve topped with fresh chives.

Quick Tips

Kohlrabi (pronounced kohl-rah-bee), may look a little strange but it is a delicious and versatile cruciferous vegetable.  The outside is light green or purple and the insides are white.  It’s similar to a sweet radish and can be cooked or simply eaten raw.  You trim the stems and we normally peel them since the skins can be thick and tough.  For more on kohlrabi, see our coaching tip!
