Kohlrabi and Green Cabbage Salad

Aug 19, 2023 | Food Styling, Recipes, Summer Foods, Summer Sides

Produce in peak season shines in this light, lovely, and flavorful salad!

I could eat this all at once! A dear friend made this salad for an Independence Day picnic recently in her fabulous garden! She has 70+ varieties of hostas growing, but this salad was even more impressive! I almost asked to take the rest home!

    This recipe is from The Kitchn. I used  oranges instead of lemons and pink Himalayan salt instead of kosher salt. It turned out great. I will definetly be making this regularly. Next time, I will include just a tiny bit less garlic and dill.

    The maple syrup in the dressing adds subtle flavor and texture. The orange makes it bright and fresh. The dried cherries are the perfect little punch of flavor. The sunflower seeds add some crunch.

    Kohlrabi provides Vitamin C and fiber.
