Purple Kohlrabi and Apple Salad


This crisp salad is a perfect side or even a sweet dessert!

3 small purple kohlrabi bulbs, peeled and diced
3 small apples, sliced thin
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 packet stevia (I use Truvia) or your favorite sweetener
juice of 1 blood orange
lemon juice or True Lemon

Prepare a bath of cold water with lemon juice or True Lemon to place kohlrabi and apples as you peel, dice and slice. This will prevent browning.

Mix vinegar, cinnamon, sweetener and blood orange juice.

Drain water bath from bowl. Toss dressing with kohlrabi and apple pieces. There may be extra dressing, you can let your salad sit in it or drain it.

Makes 4 servings

Looks very healthy and delicious! I don't cook with kohlrabi much, should look into it soon.

Kohlrabi reminds me of spring. This is my wishful thinking dish :-)

Disclaimer:

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
