Kohlrabi, apple and pastrami salad

Serves 4 10 min
With a trio of crunch – mild, nutty kohlrabi, sweet apple and piquant gherkins – this salad packs a real punch. The peppery, smokiness of the pastrami brings it all together. Serve as a light main with crusty buttered bread or as part of an al fresco dinner.


  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large kohlrabi, about 500g, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 2 apples, cored and cut into matchsticks
  • 100g pastrami, cut in bite-sized pieces
  • 8 cornichons (small cocktail gherkins), cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
