Kohlrabi Salad With Honey Ginger Dressing


2 tablespoons honey

2 kohlrabi bulbs (see note)

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 medium to large carrot

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger



To make the dressing, whisk honey and mustard together until well blended. Add vinegar, and stir until smooth. Gently stir in the grated ginger. Set aside.


Trim and peel the kohlrabi bulbs, making sure to remove enough of the skin to take off the woody layer just beneath it as well. Quarter the bulbs from root to top. Slice the quarters thinly, and divide among four plates.


Shred carrot, and place a mound on top of the kohlrabi on each plate.


Sprinkle the chopped cilantro over each carrot mound, and drizzle with the dressing just before serving. Yield: 4 servings.
