Kohlrabi slaw

Some days it just all comes together, some days not, I mean, we are moving, guys. Yesterday was one of those endless packing days, and one where I questioned just how many appliances, platters, and pans I actually need. End result, all of them.

But, last weekend it came together. I woke early, brewed amazing coffee, poured me and it into the car, blasted the stereo, Kohlrabi Slawand hit the farmers market.

One of my joys in the summertime is to wander aimlessly through the market. And when I’m suddenly struck by a recipe inspiration, that happiness is doubled. Get Himself to eat a new vegetable, and things are really happening. It’s the simple things, right? I guess?

This recipe was born in the midst of the farmers market. A little tweaking, a little chopping, and voila!

So, kohlrabi, right? It’s kinda specialized, readily available, but new to so many. Growing up, we ate it raw, dipped and dunked in our favorite veggie dip. It’s a little sweet, a lot crunchy, and all-around awesome, but if it’s not your thing, you can easily substitute jicama, and be just as happy.
