Kohlrabi, apple and walnut salad

Serves 6 15 min
Our kohlrabi season starts in May. Kohlrabi has a radish-like crunch and a turnipy mildness that's easily enjoyed – as in this salad of mild, nutty kohlrabi, sweet apple, crunch toasted walnuts and crisp watercress. This is a lovely light and healthy lunch, or try it as a side to pork chops or salmon fillets.
