kohlrabi salad


We had cold meatloaf today, so this is a good German-style salad to go with it.

First I peel the kohlrabi  (cavolo rapa) and grate it finely (I use the Magimix). You need one kohlrabi per person. I put it in a colander, add a generous amount of salt, and cover with a weighted plate.  Meanwile I make the dressing by combining yogurt, vinegar, olive oil, pepper and a little salt in the serving bowl. After 30 minutes  I squeeze handfuls of the vegetable to extract as much water as possible. I add the vegetable to the dressing and mix well.

Actually, kohlrabi isn’t readily available in Italy outside Sud Tirol. I can get it  here in a farmers’ market in via Tadi.
