Crispy Kholrabi Slaw

It's no secret I joined a CSA this year. If you're not familiar with a CSA it's basically where you pay a farmer at the beginning of the growing year & get fruits &/or veggies in return, once a week, for the entire growing season. (Shout out to the Phillies Bridge Farm Project!)

It's not only a great way to support local agriculture and the farming community, but it's a fun way to get things you may not have otherwise tried. This week, it was super adorable and oh so yummy kohlrabi, something that was actually new for me.

With a taste similar to the stem of mild broccoli and a texture like a radish, this yummy little root vegetable is great raw, sauteed, baked or even as a fritter. It's actually LOADED with nutrients and super low in calories (um, like 12 cal per 1/2 cup!)

As it was so hot out and because I also got a gorgeous bunch of cilantro this week, I let my mind wander and came up with a hankering for a crisp, crunchy salad.

The result was as delicious as it was beautiful. The crunchy kohlrabi complemented the Orange Vinaigrette and the cilantro and lime added balance to the spice in the cayenne pepper of the Kickin' Cajun Seasoning.

While there's no cooking, there is a bit of chopping and it's made easy by making matchsticks using this easy slice method:


I pared this salad with a meatloaf we made on the grill and some steamed green beans on the side. Everyone loved it and the kids even said this would make an awesome topping for fish tacos!

Kohlrabi is at most major grocers and specialty food markets around the country. Better yet, stop by your local farm market and grab a few! You won't be disappointed.

Happy Cooking!
