Kohlrabi and Apple Slaw with Mint Pesto Dressing


Kohlrabi, which means cabbage turnip in Swiss German, is a cruciferous vegetable. The flavor of fresh kohlrabi is mild and light similar to broccoli hearts. It is great raw as in this slaw and is also a fantastic addition to stir fry.



  • 2 large kohlrabi, peeled and grated
  • 2 medium green apples, peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, washed
  • 1 teaspoon turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Combine kohlrabi and apples and toss with lemon juice. Set aside.
  2. In a blender or food processor combine mint, sugar, pecans, and olive oil. Blend until smooth.
  3. Combine mint dressing and vegetables. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
