Kohlrabi is one of my favorite vegetables. My mother used to add it to vegetable and chicken soups, but my favorite way to eat it is sliced and raw. It is crunchy and delicious.
Kohlrabi is a vegetable from the cruciferous family that includes cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts and kale. In fact, the name kohlrabi means ‘turnip cabbage’ in German.
Like other cruciferous vegetables it is high in cancer preventing nutrients. Kohlrabi is also high in immune boosting vitamin C, lots of fiber and good amounts of potassium.
It can be cooked in soups and stir fries, eaten raw as a snack or added to a salad.
This crunchy and sweet salad combines kohlrabi, carrots and apples for a burst of fresh flavor and color.
