This is quite a refreshing and bracing salad. There is no oil in the recipe: citrus juice, salt and a dash of cayenne make up the dressing. The flavor of the kohlrabi and apple come through more cleanly as a result. Serve alongside heavier or fatty meat dishes for a balancing repast.

1/2 c lime, lemon or orange juice; or a combination
1 t salt
dash of ground cayenne pepper, or to taste
2 c (peeled) diced, shredded or julienned apples
4 c peeled diced, shredded or julienned apples
2 – 3 T fresh, chopped herb(s), optional

1. Combine citrus juice, salt and cayenne pepper in a serving bowl. Stir to dissolve salt.

2. Add prepared apples and kohlrabi. Gently toss to combine. Stir in chopped, fresh herb, if using. Taste and adjust accordingly.
