I work on a CSA farm (http://www.facebook.com/schoonerfarms
) and this week we harvested a TON of radishes, red, pink and French breakfast, plus I got a spare kohlrabi. I've never had it before, so I googled recipes, and found this gem
on the goodbowl.com which makes a coleslaw from kohlrabi, turnips and radishes. I still had some turnips left from 2 weeks ago too. I decided while making it to make it a little more colorful, so I threw in some carrot and cucumber too!
1 cup shredded kohlrabi
1/2 cup shredded radish
1/2 cup shredded turnip
1/3 cucumber, shredded
1/2 large carrot, shredded
1/4 cup miracle whip
1 1/2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp mustard
pinch black pepper
Shredding the kohlrabi was a bit difficult, I did not know how stringy the interior was. Maybe mine was too young or too old, or I should have cooked it first? Put all shredded vegetables in a large bowl.
Mix all ingredients of the dressing, and pour over veggies. Mix well.
This makes about 4 small servings. Refrigerate before serving. The dressing is deliciously tangy, and it's a good mix of textures.
Bonus: My tomato plants that I've been growing in pots outside for months have produced their first tiny ripe tomatoes! They were amazing, and tasted like my childhood. =)
