Kohlrabi is one of those CSA stumpers. By that I mean, it arrives in the share, and there is a little whisper of dread. I see it there on the list, and it is waiting for me to put it into my bag. I hesitate. This is what my internal dialog is like, “I know this is local and seasonal, so I should be eating this and cooking with it, but I really have no freakin’ clue what to do with it.” Does that happen to you?

Kohlrabi is one of those CSA stumpers. By that I mean, it arrives in the share, and there is a little whisper of dread. I see it there on the list, and it is waiting for me to put it into my bag. I hesitate. This is what my internal dialog is like, “I know this is local and seasonal, so I should be eating this and cooking with it, but I really have no freakin’ clue what to do with it.” Does that happen to you? I recently got a request on my Facebook page for a recipe to solve this exact situation, so I knew I should put on my thinking cap.

Kolrabi reminds me of broccoli stems in terms of its taste and texture. It has a slightly woody exterior, but when you peel that away you get a really crispy crunchy texture. It can be peeled, chopped and steamed. That’s what I usually do with it. Then I’ll sizzle a bit of garlic in olive oil, chop a few herbs and toss it all together.

I was reminded that another way to do it up is to shred it or cut it into really fine julienne strips with a mandolin and then use it raw in a salad. That’s what I did for this recipe. I mixed it with julienne cut fennel. [I did all the cutting with my oxo mandoline, which makes the whole process a whole lot less daunting. Though if you don’t have one, a box grater would probably do just great.] I thought it made a nice wintery or holiday slaw. Then I added in a creamy Greek yogurt dressing, fennel, amazingly good Bayley Hazen Blue cheese and some toasted walnuts. We had it with cod [oh my I can’t wait to share that recipe with you too, it’ll be in Parents Magazine soon. Whoo  hoo!] In retrospect, I could have fancied this slaw up a bit more with some Italian parsley, but I just love the creamy white simplicity of it this way, and the surprising pop of the blue cheese when you crunch into it.
