Kohl Slaw

Another great farmer’s market treasure is kohlrabi.  Its name is a combination of the German words for cabbage (kohl) and turnip (rübe) because it resembles a cross between the two, but is actually neither. It’s a relative of the cabbage, however, and can be used like one, but I’m told it can also be used like a potato as well. It has the texture of a potato or apple, so that makes perfect sense. It’s a little sweet, but has a certain radishy spice to it. This is probably the best cole slaw I’ve ever had, and I’m picky about my slaw.


Kohl(rabi) Slaw

  • 2 small kohlrabi, peeled and shredded
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • fresh cracked black pepper

Combine all ingredients well; add more mayo if necessary, depending how saucy you like your slaw, and adjust the amount of pepper to your own tastes.
