  • Seasonal local food recipe No.229 – Kohlrabi salad

    Posted on May 31st, 2014 Janet No comments

    This is from Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi’s book Jerusalem.  It is crunchy and refreshing. I added some chopped celery to make the salad go further but it would also be easy to scale down the dressing ingredients to suit the amount of kohlrabi you have.  For those of you who live local to Wadebridge, sumac can be bought at Elixir Health Foods at the top of Molesworth Street.

    Serves 4kohlrabi-camelcsa-290811

    Preparation time: 15 minutes

    750g kohlrabi
    80g Greek yoghurt
    70g soured cream
    50g thick double cream
    1 small garlic clove, crushed
    1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 tbsp finely shredded fresh mint
    1 tsp dried mint
    20 g baby watercress
    1/4 tsp sumac
    salt and pepper

    Peel the kohlrabi, cut into 1.5 cm dice and put in a large mixing bowl.  Put the yoghurt, soured cream, double cream, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil in a medium bowl.  Add 1/4 tsp salt and a healthy grind of pepper and whisk well.  Add the dressing to the kohlrabi, followed by the fresh and dried mint and half the watercress.  Gently stir and place on a serving dish.  Dot the remaining watercress on top and sprinkle with the sumac.
