too much kohlrabi! really?

Kossak (F1)

we’ve grown two large, cooking type kohlrabi this year: kossak and gigante

my Mom brought the dish below for the Garlic Party Harvest potluck. It got rave reviews by many in attendance. You’ve received large kohlrabi, surely, she used three of her kohlrabi, peeled, with an equivalent amount of potatoes (in other words, half and half, regardless of size). For the sauce, she made a suitable amount of her favorite potato salad “sauce”. Use, aqapt, modify as you please!

Kohlrabi “Potato” Salad

6 large kohlrabi (I used kohlrabi and potatoes cooked separately) peeled and cut into pieces

3 large scallions

2-3 cloves garlic minced

1 15 oz container of part-skim ricotta

2 T. mayonnaise

2 T spicy brown mustard

Juice of 1 lemon

Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the kohlrabi in salted water until fork tender, about 20-40 minutes. Cook potatoes in separate pan about 15-20 minutes. Drain and add scallions and garlic. Combine kohlrabi and potatoes. Let kohlrabi and potatoes stand while you whisk together the ricotta, mayo mustard, salt and pepper in separate bowl until creamy. Pour over the kohlrabi and potatoes and gently stir to combine. Serve warm or chilled. This is great to make in advance because a day in the fridge lets the flavors develop.
