Kohlrabi apple salad

This was a really easy and tasty salad. I had never had kohlrabi and and was not sure what to do with it. It has a similar crunchiness as hicama or radish. After a bit of hunting and a few modifications, came up with this recipe.

Kohlrabi Apple Salad
1 medium kohlrabi, peeled and julienned
1 large firm apple, julienned
lemon slice

1 glove garlic
salt and pepper
2 - 3 sprigs thyme
1 Tbs dijon mustard
2 Tbs wine vinegar
4 - 5 Tbs EVOO

Start by peeling and julienning the kohlrabi and apple.

To prevent browning of the apple while you prepare the dressing, place the apple and kohlrabi in a large bowl, cover with water and squeeze in the lemon.

To make the dressing, with a mortar and pestle crush the garlic with salt and add the thyme. Mix until a paste forms, add the mustard and vinegar and mix until smooth. Slowly drizzle in the EVOO as you stir to combine.

Drain the apple and kohlrabi and pat dry. Toss with the dressing and season with salt and pepper to taste.
