  3. Cut the kohlrabi and rainbow carrots into smaller pieces and place in food processor and pulse 2-3 times or grate well.
  4.  Add to a separate bowl or mix with kale.
  5. Chop apple into small pieces and add to kohlrabi and carrots.
  6. Lastly add raisins, remaining olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and mix together well.

Makes a great addition to any meal!

Sooo, what the heck is kohlrabi you ask?

It’s part bulb, part greens and like a cross between a radish, jicama, broccoli, and collard greens. Try it raw or roasted!
