Kohlrabi Slaw

It has a funny name, but kohlrabi is a versatile vegetable that is delicious cooked or raw, as in this easy recipe.

  • 2 medium kohlrabi, peeled shredded
  • 2 small carrots, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon shredded onion
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine the shredded kohlrabi with the shredded carrots and onion in a bowl. Combine the remaining ingredients, in a separate bowl, and blend well. Pour over the shredded vegetables and toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, to allow the flavors to intensify.

Makes about 6 servings.
