Kohlrabi Salad

Serves 4

Kohlrabi is much like a large radish crossed with broccoli. This salad is tart, slightly bitter, and salty.

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 kohlrabi
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 2 tablespoons capers

Whisk together oil, vinegar, and Dijon mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Peel kohlrabi and shave into paper-thin slices using a mandoline. Toss with half of the vinaigrette. Incorporate the remaining vinaigrette with the arugula. Place kohlrabi slices on top of arugula. Sprinkle with capers.
