Fall Slaw with Maple Tahini Dressing

I am a huge fan of the Farmer’s Market. I go at least 2 to 3 times a week to get fresh produce, flowers, and plants. Prices can’t be beat, and the selection is always great. Sunday morning, I was making my usual rounds when I spotted a few friends at the Market Talk. It is a very cool demonstration area that highlights local growers, chefs, etc. I have done two raw food presentations there.



Sunday’s topic was, “All about Rutabaga” presented by Kim Christensen. She has a great blog called, “Affairs of Living” where she has all kinds of gluten free and allergy free recipes.  I couldn’t help but sit down to watch because I love rutabaga. Kim was in the middle of a making a salad using raw rutabaga! Inspired, I went home and threw together a  raw food recipe for fall slaw with rutabaga, kohlrabi, and a bunch of other fun things topped off with a Maple Tahini Dressing! This recipe goes together fast. The biggest problem I had was trying not to eat it all before I had a picture of it! This will become a staple at my house.

    Maple syrup that has Kosher certification, such as a U inside a circle or a K inside a circle (I tried to cut and paste these symbols but was not successful, sorry), is NOT made with any animal products.

    This slaw looks great!

    Delicious! I have been looking for something to do with kohlrabi. I’m a kohlrabi virgin!

    Also, there is a misnomer that all maple syrup is processed with animal fat as a de-foaming agent. This is extremely rare and only practiced by old-school type producers running a small scale business. You could always ask but there are plenty of companies that offer certified vegan maple syrup.

    FYI – maple syrup is processed using animal product and is not at all raw, heated several times.

      Yes..I know that. It is mentioned several times on the site that it is not raw. Not sure what animal products you are referring to. The maple syrup I use is made here by boiling the sap down. That is why there are options for you. Maple syrup is used in many raw food recipes as an alternative to other sweeteners.

    We get lots of junk mail (mostly for my mother). I open every envelope, and save all the papers that are only printed on one side, and use them for our personal printing. The other pages are shredded and used to stuff gift baskets.

    YUM! And so beautiful! Just printed, can’t wait to make it. I love the market too – we’re so lucky, especially this year, when the bounty has carried over to the end of October.
