Recipe—Kohlrabi Dill Coleslaw

A couple of weeks ago in my produce box I got a green turnip like item that had leafy greens coming out of the top and sides. I thought what on earth is this funny looking vegetable. Turns out it was kohlrabi and that I love it!

Kohlrabi is a member of the cabbage family and it looks like a light green turnip. It is crisp like an apple and has a bit of a bite to it like a radish but a mild sweetness to it similar to a coconut. I would like to say kohlrabi is delicious and I am hooked on it! I am forever a fan of this fabulous vegetable. It makes the greatest coleslaw ever!

My husband is not a huge fan of coleslaw or dill and when he ate this, the exact words out of his mouth were, “Oh my god babe, this is so good.” We both went back for seconds.This is not overly sweet like many typical types of coleslaw so it was the perfect low-carb complement to the sweet bbq sauce I used on my ribs. It was nice and crunchy and the bit of dill gave it a wonderful freshness. Kohlrabi dill coleslaw will be a regular summer side dish in our house from here on out!
