This healthy mulberry kohlrabi salad is a delicious light salad that goes well with any dish. Kohlrabi have a mild flavor and taste so good raw.
What is kohlrabi?
Have you seen a kohlrabi? I have passed this vegetable by for years. I didn’t know what to do with it.
It comes in green and purple and it is definitely an odd looking vegetable! The flavor is like a sweeter version of a broccoli stem. You may have wondered what do you do with a kohlrabi when you saw it in the market. Kohlrabi is delicious raw or cooked, and it can be used in a lot of different recipes.
I have only had kohlrabi a few times now, but my favorite way to eat this vegetable so far is raw in a salad. Do you have a vegetable spiralizer? This is by far one of my favorite tools to help get kids to eat veggies. It isn’t fool proof, I know not to spiralize anything green. That would totally set off all of warnings for my kids. Green stuff like this yummy Kale and Green Apple Salad will never be my teens’ favorite.
This kohlrabi mulberry salad is going to surprise you. It is going to make you love kohlrabi.

What are mulberries?
The second star of this salad are these dried organic white mulberries that I recently discovered. You can find them fresh at specialty markets in the summer, or you can enjoy them dried any time of the year. Mine are from a company called Anthony’s Goods and they have quite a few of my favorite gluten free products on Amazon. Everything from spices, to some gluten free flours, to the ultra finely ground almond flour I love to use in my gluten free baking. (Not to mention these mulberries come in a much larger quantity and are half the price of the ones you see at Whole Foods!) They are delicious in granola, topped on yogurt, bake with them, or eat them right out of the bag!
As you can tell, I used the green kohlrabi for this salad recipe. It has a slight greenish tinge of color, a little lighter in color than broccoli stalk.
