Kale Salad with Cabbage, Kohlrabi and Cucumber

Today it was time to pick kale from the garden again so I decided to try a salad.  If the kale keeps growing at this pace, I may have to come up with a ’100 Ways to Fix Kale’ recipe book! There is something really satisfying about walking into the backyard and picking salad ingredients from our garden — kale and green onions.  The kohlrabi and cabbage were provided by our good friends at Johnson’s Backyard Garden (JBG).  I was so into my salad chopping that I forgot to take a picture of the kohlrabi, but you can see a picture on the JBG website.  This is another new veggie for us — it is very unique looking and it has a cabbage-like taste. As long as we are talking about our locally sourced salad, I should mention that all the other ingredients came from our always popular Central Market.

The thing I love about this salad is the crunchiness of all the vegetables, the toasted nuttiness of the walnuts and the sweet and sour dressing — not to mention how colorful it is.
