Green Kohlrabi with Toasted Hazelnuts, Lemon Zest, and Rosé Wine Vinaigrette

10 Mins

If a tender broccoli stalk and a crisp apple made a baby, you would have kohlrabi -- and you'd be psyched. This salad is all crunch, and because kohlrabi can withstand sitting in dressing at room temp, it works well served as a side salad, a packed lunch, or a party dish. When shopping for kohlrabi, look for medium-size bulbs, firm with bright green leaves attached (this is how you know they are super fresh and haven't been in cold storage for weeks). 

I call for rosé wine vinegar here, which is lighter and less sharp than classic red wine vinegar. I buy mine from Wölffer Estate Vineyard. They make their vinegar using their estate rosé wine aged in wooden barrels for 6 months. If you don't feel like purchasing another pantry item, substitute sherry vinegar and it'll be just fine.

Serves 2-4

Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 1 Tbsp. Rosé Wine Vinegar or Sherry Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Honey
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp. Shallot, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil

For the salad:

  • 2 baseball-size Green Kohlrabi, peeled
  • 3 Tbsp. Toasted Hazelnuts, chopped
  • 1 Lemon
  • Black Pepper, freshly ground

1. In a salad bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, salt, shallot, and oil until the dressing is emulsified and you have a thick vinaigrette.

2. Cut the kohlrabi into 1/4-inch (6-mm) cubes, being as consistent as possible.

3. Toss the kohlrabi and hazelnuts with the dressing and use a Microplane to zest the lemon over the whole salad. Season with pepper and more salt, if needed, and serve.
