Super yummy kohlrabi slaw

My family is a member of a local CSA farm for the second season this year and we love it! We have the freshest vegetables brought to our door for about 20 weeks during the growing season, and I love making the new recipes that I receive from the farm. The farm sends out recipes related to the produce for the week. Kohlrabi is something I would probably never buy off the store since I have never heard of it before and it is absolutely delicious. It is similar to cabbage in taste when put in a slaw and smells like a potato when it's being shredded. It's texture is also like that of a potato. I must say becoming a member of a CSA has broadened my food horizon greatly. This slaw recipe is one I received from the farm today in an email. I had two kohlrabi heads and wanted to use them up before I got my next batch of produce in a couple of days. I have also been craving a cole slaw lately, and this will satisfy that craving nicely. This slaw is very tasty, and quite easy to make.
