Kohlrabi Cabbage Salad -- Awesome!

This is a simple, refreshing, cancer-preventing, crunchy, tart, sweet, and savory salad that you will love!

Kohlrabi Cabbage Salad
1/3 of a head of cabbage
1 large apple
1 lemon OR lemon juice
Apple cider vinegar
Thinly slice everything up, mix, and enjoy!

*Before chopping kohlrabi, discard stems and cut off outer layer -- I hadn't even heard of this veggie before I joined Geauga Family Farms CSA!)
*If including a whole lemon, very yum!, cut off outermost yellow skin, keeping plenty of the white portion; it has a mild, taste and adds fiber!
*Play with the quantities of juice, vinegar, and pepper to get the taste you love! It's always a good idea to start with less than you think you'll need -- you can always add more!
*Kohlrabi and cabbage are cruciferous veggies, in the same group as broccoli and cauliflower, which all have amazing properties which allow humans to prevent cancer, and even potentially reverse it! Click on any of the links for more information and other recipes for cruciferous veggies!
I always love when I don't have to cook something at the stove or in the oven, and ESPECIALLY in this sweltering summer of 2012! Hope you enjoy too! How are you staying COOL?!
