Kohlrabi slaw

Kohlrabi slaw

Kohlrabi is a German word meaning cabbage (Kohl) and turnip (Rabi). While it may look like a foreign food, it is a European native and a member of the mustard family. Because it is crisp, juicy and has a slightly creamy taste, it makes a fantastic slaw. Also try it as an alternative to potato in mash, roasted with salt and olive oil, or sliced thinly in salads.
