Kohlrabi seems to be one of those vegetables that people have a hard time using up in their CSA box or if you have passed them by at your local market, I hope this recipe will encourage you to pick one or two up. Another surprise ingredient is the Swiss chard, it adds an earthy taste but in a good way.. This is an easy recipe to put together and one of those that tastes even better after a day in the fridge.
Swiss Chard & Kohlrabi Slaw
by Inspired by the Seasons
For the dressing:
- 3 T rice vinegar
- 1/2 tsp honey
- 1 T finely diced shallot
- Pinch of Salt
Combine all the above in a lidded container and shake to combine.
For the salad:
- 1 medium kohlrabi (about the size of a softball) julliened
- 2 medium sized cucumbers sliced; should be about 2 cups
- 2 c Swiss chard stems finely diced and leaves cut into thin ribbons
In a medium bowl combine all the above and toss with dressing. Start with 2 T then add more to taste. This is good the same day and improves the next day.
