Make this slaw when kohlrabi first comes into season and bulbs are not too large. Colorful carrots and crisp apples make this slaw beautiful and crunchy. Substitute other fresh herbs (like fresh basil or parsley) if you don’t have mint and cilantro.



1 teaspoon orange zest, grated finely

1/4 cup fresh orange juice

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

a few grinds black pepper

2 kohlrabi bulbs, peeled, cut into rounds, then into 1/4-inch strips

2 carrots, peeled and grated coarsely

1 apple, cored and sliced thinly

1 small jalapeño pepper or 1/4 cup red bell pepper, seeded and sliced thinly (optional) 

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

1/4 cup mint leaves, chopped


In a small bowl, whisk together orange zest, orange juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

In a large bowl, toss together kohlrabi, carrots, apple, and pepper (if using). 

Add orange dressing and fresh herbs.

We can help each other through these trying times

Now that we are all stuck at home I am creating more ways to help you connect to the community through healthy and delicious food. Every Wednesday at noon I am doing a Facebook Live show featuring cooking demos, tips and guest chefs from around the country. You can find that on my personal facebook page   

I also just started a low-cost subscription called Cooking Together to help people stay healthy while we all work to get through these challenging times. One of the most important things to me is community, so more than ever I want to focus on the community side of Cook Love Heal. Find out more about it here.

Join me in the Cook Love Heal Community

Just like before this started, when you join the Cook Love Heal Community I’ll send you my Natural Health Starter Kit for free, along with regular recipes & tips every week.

We’re all in this together. Let’s help each other build a better future
