It's not exactly a turnip, not exactly a cabbage, but kohlrabi is a fellow member of the Brassica family. Its taste resembles both its siblings while being a little more sweet than either. Blogger sassyradish has created this salad by cutting the kohlrabi into matchsticks, and mixing it with Gala apples, for a mega-crunch factor. She puts an Asian spin on the salad with hot Thai bird's-eye chiles and a bit of fish sauce (cilantro and cumin also add flavor to the mix). (Get her recipe here.)
