Kohlrabi Salad Revisited

Still looking for kohlrabi inspiration?  Me too.  I finally developed a taste for the bulb in my  my favorite kohlrabi salad.  But the greens?  Hmm.  Instead of immediately throwing the greens to the chickens, I thought I’d revisit that recipe and see if they can’t be incorporated.  Besides, the chickens have enough pasture this time of year and I’m trying to up the brassica (cabbage family) superfoods in my diet.  The greens are certainly tougher than delicate lettuces, but they provide a crunchier, coleslaw-like texture to the salad.  If you prepare the salad ahead of time, it will give them time to soften in the dressing.

In a bowl, whisk together the Vinaigrette:

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive or grapeseed oil

Toss in the Greens:

  • 1 large bulb kohlrabi, peeled and sliced thin
  • kohlrabi green, thick stems removed, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp capers
