Crunchy Kohlrabi and Carrot Slaw

A Culinary Adventure Awaits

Y’all, let me tell you about the delightful discovery I made the other day. I was rummaging through a box of local produce from Home Cooking Rocks, our family’s go-to spot for fresh, seasonal ingredients, when I stumbled upon something I’d never seen before – kohlrabi! Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Kohlrabi? What in tarnation is that?” Well, let me tell you, this unassuming vegetable is about to rock your world.

Introducing the Enigmatic Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi, my friends, is a member of the cabbage family with a taste that’s a cross between a mild turnip and a crunchy apple. It’s got this unique, bulbous shape that just begs to be shredded and tossed into a slaw. And let me tell you, that’s exactly what I did. With a box of fresh carrots from the same delivery, I set out to create a twist on a classic – a Crunchy Kohlrabi and Carrot Slaw that’s gonna have your taste buds doing a happy dance.

Slaw, the Southern Staple

Now, y’all know I’m a true-blue Southerner, and coleslaw is practically a birth-right down here. Mama always made the best slaw, with that perfect balance of sweet, sour, and creamy. But I’ve got to admit, I’ve been getting a little tired of the same old cabbage-and-carrot combo. That’s why I was so excited to experiment with this kohlrabi – it’s the perfect opportunity to put a new spin on an old favorite.

Crunchy, Flavorful Perfection

Let me tell you, this Crunchy Kohlrabi and Carrot Slaw is the stuff dreams are made of. The kohlrabi adds a delightful crunch that just can’t be beat, while the carrots bring a touch of sweetness to complement the mild, turnip-y flavor. And the dressing? Ohh, the dressing is where the magic happens, my friends.

I took a page right out of Mama’s playbook, whipping up a creamy, tangy dressing with just the right amount of sweetness. But here’s the secret ingredient that’s gonna have your guests begging for the recipe – celery seed. Trust me, a sprinkle of that little spice will take your slaw to a whole new level of flavor.

A Picnic Worthy Slaw

Now, y’all know that no Southern picnic is complete without a heaping helping of coleslaw, right? Well, this Crunchy Kohlrabi and Carrot Slaw is about to become the star of the show. It’s the perfect cool and crunchy side dish to pair with all your barbecue favorites, from juicy pulled pork to grilled chicken. And the best part? You can make it ahead of time, so when it’s time to head out for your next picnic, all you’ve gotta do is grab the bowl and go.

Versatility at its Finest

But let me tell you, this slaw isn’t just for picnics. Nope, it’s the kind of side dish that’s gonna work its way into your regular meal rotation. Pile it high on top of your favorite sandwich or burger for an extra crunch. Or toss it with some vermicelli noodles for a delightful Vietnamese-inspired salad. Heck, you can even use it as a topping for your tacos or burrito bowls – the possibilities are endless, y’all!

A Produce Lover’s Dream

And you know what makes this Crunchy Kohlrabi and Carrot Slaw even better? The fact that I got to use all these incredible, fresh-from-the-farm ingredients from Home Cooking Rocks. I’m telling you, there’s nothing quite like the taste of produce that’s been lovingly harvested and delivered straight to your door. It’s like a little bit of farm-fresh magic in every bite.

A New Culinary Adventure Awaits

So, what are you waiting for, folks? It’s time to venture out of your comfort zone and give this Crunchy Kohlrabi and Carrot Slaw a try. Trust me, your taste buds are going to thank you. And who knows, you might just discover a new favorite veggie in the process. After all, that’s the best part about cooking – the opportunity to embark on delicious new adventures, one bite at a time.
