These kohlrabi have been staring at me for a very long time. And I’m finally succumbing to the temptation to try them out in this delicious and refreshing recipe! The soft hues of pale greens, yellow and pink are screaming “it’s spring!” I love how the subtle grain mustard dressing compliments everything.
Kohlrabi are not very popular in comparison with other greens like kale but you’d be surprised to know that they’re full of nutrients and minerals like copper, potassium, manganese, iron, and calcium, as well as vitamins, such as vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, vitamin A, and vitamin K. Personally, I’m thinking of eating a lot more kohlrabi, stay tuned for new recipes!
If you want to make it a meal, you can use this salad as a basis for a delicious wrap. All you have to do is buy delicious pita bread and firm tofu. The end result is quite mind-blowing, I promise!
