A light, fresh tasting slaw made with an underused cool season veggie. It is chock full of nutrients and is considered to be a great cancer fighting food from the cabbage family. The food processor works great for grating your veggies.
This recipe makes about 4 servings. It is adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe.
2 pounds kohlrabi, peeled and either grated or cut into matchsticks.
2 carrots, either grated or cut into matchsticks
1 1/2 cups of a crisp apple, cut into matchsticks

1/2 large orange, zest and juice 2 tsp zest
