Asian Radishrabi Salad and Fermented Kohlrabi and Radishes
My Mother brought me some radishes and kohlrabi from the farmer's market last week and asked if I could make her a salad out of it. She does this every year with kohlrabi, I think it is secretly one of her favorite veggies. Or maybe she just buys it because it used to be one of the veggies her Grandmother grew in her garden. I don't know what Great Grandma did with them, but I imagine she made something delicious. So this time my Mom brought the kohlrabi home, she told me about an Asian Salad she had seen, and said that sounded good, so I came up with my own version of it with the kohlrabi, radishes and some celery and scallions added in as well. It was simple, but delicious and balanced. I decided it needed to be shared with you all!
