This is a great way to use kohlrabi. Kohlrabi’s bitter taste is cut with the sweet apples and a tangy dressing.

Kohlrabi and Apple Salad with Creamy Mustard Dressing

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon coarse-grained mustard
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated white sugar
  • 2 bunches kohlrabi (about 2 pounds), bulbs peeled and shredded- discard leaves
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and shredded
Directions:
  1. Set down two layers of paper towels. Place shredded kohlrabi on top of paper towels. Wrap up and squeeze out moisture. Place squeezed-dry kohlrabi and shredded apple together in a bowl and toss.
  2. In a bowl, whisk cream until it holds soft peaks; whisk in lemon juice, mustard, parsley, sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Pour over shredded mix, and toss to mix well. Serve.
Tips:
  • Try subbing sour cream or plain yogurt for the heavy whipping cream. You'll get a bit of different flavor, but you'll save on the fat calories.
  • Add amount of dressing desired, to taste. You may wish to have it very creamy (using it all) or minimally dress it using just a portion of the dressing.
  • Use box grater or food processor for shredding.

    Very tasty! Nice and crisp and perfect for a barbecue. We used all the dressing, next time I will add more parsley and perhaps roasted almonds or hazelnuts.
