Moroccan Carrot and Kohlrabi Salad

Whee more kohlrabi! There is this box at my CSA share pick up for trade-ins. Drop something you don’t like and pick up something else. The box easily accumulates an abundance of kohlrabi. Which means that a lot of people may still not know what to do with them, or just really dislike them. Last time I braised them in butter and mustard sauce, but today I’m going to try to eat it raw. Like some salad or slaw.

Carrots are also making an appearance. We got a little bit of baby carrots which are very sweet and super yum. I’m not a huge fan of raw carrots, and I sometimes make the extra effort to fork them out. But when they’re young, they’re really tasty and not too crunchy. In fact, the kohlrabi and the young carrots seemed to have the same crunch level, which makes an enjoyable salad. Or slaw.

    This was a very good salad for this weather! I substituted the cilantro for basil and the apricots for fresh peaches. Also, since I am not a fan of raisins, I tried two other additions instead: dried cherries (very tart and gave it a nice kick) and walnut pieces(this made it more robust, like a meal. Either of these was good for us…
