Kohlrabi Cabbage Salad with Farm Boy Mediterranean Dressing
Kohlrabi Cabbage Salad with Farm Boy Mediterranean Dressing

This time of year is the perfect time to make salads with seasonal vegetables. Cabbage, radishes and kohlrabi are plentiful and so tasty.

Kohlrabi cabbage salad is a nice change from your regular green leaf lettuce salads.

Kohlrabi, is part of the Brassica family which includes cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard greens and brussel sprouts. Kohlrabi has a mild sweet flavour when eaten raw in salads or used for vegetable dips. It comes in two distinct colours; green and purple.

Health benefits of Kohlrabi:

  • Sweet and crisp high in vitamin C and fibre
  • Contains B vitamins
  • Has good levels of minerals; cooper, calcium, potassium, manganese, iron, and phosphorus
  • Improves body metabolism
  • Boosts immune system
  • Reduces risk of breast and prostate cancer

Selection and Preparation

Choose medium to small kohlrabi during the months of November to March. Large kohlrabi can sometimes be woody and hard. If you are keeping kholrabi for more than 3 days, store in the fridge.

My favourite way to eat fresh kohlrabi is to peel it and eat it raw or add it to salads or coleslaw
