Kohlrabi Salad

Kohlrabi (also called a turnip cabbage) tastes like the offspring of a radish and jicama. This refreshingly crisp, juicy vegetable is loaded with vitamin C. Putzel Kitchen mixes it with other fresh garden flavors of fennel, dill and seasonal berries to make a light, bright salad in minutes.
