Kohlrabi and Cabbage Slaw

Is anyone else panicked when it’s time to pick up your new box of CSA produce and you realize you still have a lot of the previous week’s haul? Maybe it’s just me…

I had intended to make this recipe during the week, but jury duty and nightly rehearsals make it hard to do much of anything. Last week, we got cabbage for the first time and what the heck do you do with cabbage except make slaw? Ok, lots of things, but this seemed the easiest. It’s quite good! Now, if only I had some pulled pork from the smoker…

Kohlrabi and Cabbage Slaw

2 cups chopped cabbage
4 kohlrabi bulbs, peeled and grated
2 stalks celery, sliced thin
2 carrots, sliced thin
2 tablespoons minced fresh onion
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1. Toss the cabbage, kohlrabi, celery, carrot, and onion together in a large bowl.
2. Whisk the sugar, salt, pepper, celery seed, mayonnaise, and vinegar together in a separate bowl until smooth; pour over the cabbage mixture and stir to coat evenly. Chill in refrigerator 1 hour before serving.

    I will definitely make this next week! Our farmer Matt had lovely kohlrabi available at his stand, although we have not gotten any in our weekly haul. I love cole slaw so I am going to try it. Maybe Kim will make some pulled pork for our corn throw down!

      Also, I forgot to say that I am already getting panicky about using up all of our produce when I return to school! I am so proud of myself each week when I use it all up by Thursday evening. Only one time we didn’t eat everything by Saturday morning, but now that I am working in my classroom each day I know that I will fall behind, so I so sympathize with you Elyse! You had an incredibly busy week last week! Will Kim pick up the slack for me when I go back to school? Depends on how busy he gets at work!
