Author Notes

Freshly made, this slaw is fantastic. Left to sit for a few hours and it gets even better! —Colleen Stem

What You'll Need
  • 2 kohlrabis
  • 1 big apple (honey crisp, pink lady..something sweet and holds up well)
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
  • red wine vinegar
  • salt to taste
  1. In a large bowl, julienne or shave the kohlrabi (after peeled), the apple and carrot. Sprinkle with salt, add toss together with a few splashed of vinegar. Rough chop walnuts and toss the whole bit together again. Let sit for at least 10 minutes, if not longer before serving. (A great salad to make ahead of time) Eat as is, or toss onto a bed of greens, plate of rice or a bowl of lentils. Any left overs only end up tasting better the next day.

I did it again! No blame to the website, but I swear it eats my words and parts of my recipes!!!
I add about 1/2 cup toasted walnuts. And for the salt and vinegar.. I eye ball it. Like a pinch of salt and a splash splash of either red wine or apple cider vinegar….. Thanks for letting me know Wesrcoastly!

Hi, Colleen, you don't give any portion sizes for salt, vinegar or walnuts. What do you suggest? And what kind of vinegar?
