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 plum.com 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
1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp. Honey
2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
4 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Combine the kohlrabi, apple, red onion, and chives in a large bowl. Lightly season with salt and black pepper.
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.
Toss the slaw with the vinaigrette. Using a vegetable peeler or cheese plane, shave the cheese over the slaw and serve.
