Kholrabi Slaw

Kohlrabi Slaw with Basil + Apple

A refreshing healthy summer salad made with kohlrabi, basil, apple,

and a citrus honey vinaigarette!

Trim and peel kohlrabi. ( I normally have to peel twice to get thru the

thick skin). Cut off two ends. Cut in half from top to bottom. Thinly

slice, rotate and slice again, making 1/4 inch matchsticks. Place in

large bowl cut vegetables, apple, basil, jalapeno, scallion, and zest.

Whisk dressing together in a small bowl and toss with salad. Refrigerate

until serving. This salad will taste even better the next day!

Note: Use a mandoline to get nice uniform matchstick cuts on your

vegetables. Just beware, the blade is sharp! Make sure to use the

guard!

Note #2: To get really fresh and crunchy cucumber, cut into matchstick

and place in a colander over a sink. Sprinkle with salt and allow to

drain for 10-15 minutes. The salt will draw out excess water, leading

to crunchy cucumber pieces! Sqeeze out excess water and add to your

salad!
