Kohlrabi And Apple Salad: frequently asked questions

What is kohlrabi?

Kohlrabi is the tuber of a cabbage plant, which grows above ground. Raw kohlrabi is best described in terms of flavour as a mix of radish, hazelnut and chestnut.

Usually, kohlrabi are green, but there are also beautiful purple skinned kohlrabi. Both colours of kohlrabi are white inside.

Can I leave out the sultanas?

If you don't like sultanas, you can omit them completely. However, the sweet taste of the sultanas is a perfect balance to the slightly peppery kohlrabi. You could add some finely chopped dried apricots to the kohlrabi salad, if you like.
