Roasted Beet and Kohlrabi Salad – An Earthy Cool-season Dish
Roasted Beet and Kohlrabi Salad makes an easy cool-season salad.
Kohlrabi isn’t pretty and a little out of this world alien-looking, but it’s sure easy to love.
Pale green or reddish, the little alien-shaped vegetable is delicious both raw and cooked; its flavor is suggestive of broccoli without the bite. The name is German for “cabbage turnip,” and like both fall and winter (in Southern California) vegetables, it’s in high season right now.
When roasted, kohlrabi becomes tender with a pleasant nutty flavor and makes a great partner to beets, also at their seasonal peak. Beets with their sweet earthy flavor, bring contrast and flavor to brighten up this Roasted Beet and Kohlrabi Salad.
