I like dishes using foods that look the same but have very different textures and tastes. This is one of those dishes.
Kohlrabi and fennel and onions don’t look anything alike before they are cut up.
Cut up they look very similar. If I had used a white or yellow onion it would be hard to tell what is what.
Kohlrabi and Fennel Salad
1 peeled Kohlrabi bulb
2 fennel bulbs
1 small onion
a handful of parsley
juice of a lemon or lime
a good glug of olive oil
salt and pepper and red pepper if you like
Slice and chop all the vegetables and parsley very thin, dress the vegetables with oil and citus juice and season well and toss.
Very simple and delicious. All the textures and sharp flavors make this a very sophisticated side.
I am loving these warm weather crops! Hope you are too.
