Kohlrabi slaw

Kohlrabi is a nice crunchy vegetable that works great in this coleslaw adaptation. Teamed up with apples and carrots, this salad is sure to be a family favorite and a great dish to pass for the potluck where you have to bring a salad.


  • 4 purple kohlrabi
  • 4 green kohlrabi
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 large apples red variety for color
  • 10 radishes (optional)
  • dressing of your choice
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (to prevent apples from discoloring)


  1. Trim off kohlrabi leaves and set aside. Cut kohlrabi, radishes and carrots matchstick style and place in large salad bowl.
  2. Remove apple core and cut apples matchstick style and mix together with lemon juice before adding to salad bowl.
  3. Dice kohlrabi leaves and add to salad bowl.

  4. Mix salad well after adding your favorite salad dressing.

  5. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I like to serve this dressing with a homemade vinaigrette, but I think that it would be equally tasty with a sour cream or mayonnaise-based dressing. In fact, it tastes pretty good with just a little salt and lemon juice!
