CSA box and had no clue what to do with it. Can't find kohlrabi? Use cabbage or broccoli stems instead. What's so great about kohlrabi? It has a lovely mild flavor that beautifully complements the apples and is a remarkable source of vitamin C among other vitamins and nutrients!
Serves 5 as a main dish, serves 12 - thousands as a side....it makes a lot.
6 granny smith apples, cored
5 kohlrabi, peeled
1 carrot, peeled
1⁄2 cup cabbage
4-5 Tbsp mint, finely chopped
4 dates, finely chopped
1 cup cashews, soaked for an hour
1⁄4 cup filtered water
1⁄2 lemon, juiced
2 Tbsp whole grain dijon mustard
2 Tbsp agave
1 cup pecans, lightly crushed
salt and pepper to taste
If you have a mandolin, this will be really easy - if not, it'll require a little love - perfect! it's almost Valentine's day!
Mandolin the apples, kohlrabi, carrot and cabbage and put in a large bowl with mint and dates. If you don't have a mandolin, use the largest side of your grater, and grate the vegetables. In a blender, blend the cashews, water, lemon juice, mustard, agave, salt and pepper until very creamy. Add water as needed until it resembles a creamy salad dressing. Toss dressing with vegetables and chill for 30 minutes (chilling optional).
Raw (if you use raw mustard) and Gluten Free!
