Kohlrabi slaw

Kohlrabi slaw
What the heck is a kohlrabi?  It's a bulb that grows above the ground and is somewhat in the cabbage family.  I had some in my garden last year and they were fun to play around with in the kitchen.  This year I had to buy them but they should be in the market now and they are really a crisp and fresh vegetable.  I found this recipe on strawberry and did a little variation:

Only the carrot and chives are from my garden

mise en place
  • 3 small Kohlrabi, peeled and julienned
  • 1 large Apple peeled and julienned 
  • 2 carrots, peeled and julienned
  • ¼ large Red Onion, very thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped Chives
  • dressing:
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  1. Combine the kohlrabi, apple, red onion, and chives in a large bowl. Lightly season with salt and black pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, honey, and vinegar. While whisking, slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking until the dressing has emulsified. Season with ¼-1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt and black pepper.
  3. Toss the slaw with the vinaigrette. Using a vegetable peeler or cheese plane, shave the cheese over the slaw and serve.
