Red Cabbage and Kohlrabi Slaw

Red Cabbage and Kohlrabi Slaw


Who says you need mayo to make a good slaw? Crisp, refreshing and packed with nutrients, this slaw is substantial enough to be its own meal, or used as a side next to the protein of your choice.

The citrus dressing doubles as a marinade for chicken. It’s ridiculous. You should try it, even if you don’t make the slaw. But seriously, make the slaw.

Like the dressing? Combine dressing ingredients in a small mason jar and keep in fridge up to week. Great with a generous pinch of dried cilantro for other salads or as a marinade.
