You know those times when you just want to sit down and eat the whole bowl of something. It’s that bottomless pit syndrome, that little nagging in your jaw that begs you ‘up down up down’… a case of the ‘noshes’ as I like to call it.
It also comes as no surprise that the desire to eat forever usually strikes when something sweet [dark chocolate, chips, popcorn, and swedish fish to name a few] hits your lips. And while those little red fishes taste oh so good going down, they don’t usually leave you feeling great at the bottom of the bag.
This slaw is my new go-to eat-the-whole-bowl food. You most likely already have all the ingredients in your fridge, and it comes together in minutes leaving you with little time to be distracted by other things [like the bag of Snap Pea chips you bought yesterday].
The kohlrabi satisfies the need for something to crunch on, and the apples and raisins add a natural sweetness. Not a drop of oil in site, this quick slaw is perfect for cravings, hot summer days, lazy afternoons, and any time in between.
