This is a welcome side step on the usual potato salad. The local market garden growers set up shop each here in town each Wed and I enjoy buying from the Hutterites. They always have very fresh organic produce and this past Wed I grabbed some kolrabi. I found this recipe in the search for a worthy destiny for the veggies. I love this and the single thing that keeps it from being 5 stars is that it's very bland, I added some red pepper flakes and that made a huge difference in the zing factor. :D

I'd never cooked kohlrabi before... it always gets eaten right out of the garden, but I thought this would be a good first recipe to try. After steaming they seemed strangely waterlogged. It made the mix too bland so I added a LOT more mustard. It was enjoyable though.
