    serves 6-8


When grated and mixed with heavy cream and farmer's cheese, kohlrabi makes a creamy yet refreshing slaw. This recipe first appeared in our May 2011 issue, with the article Riga Revisited.


  • 1 cup farmer's cheese or cottage cheese, drained overnight in a cheesecloth-lined strainer
  • 13 cup heavy cream
  • 14 cup peeled and grated Granny Smith apple
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 medium kohlrabies, peeled and grated
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp. sliced parsley leaves


Step 1

In a large bowl, stir cheese, cream, apple, salt, kohlrabies, and pepper until evenly combined; let sit for 10 minutes, so flavors can marry. Garnish with parsley before serving.
