Hi all,
I am not a CSA member/ Wish I was. I noticed that kohlrabi is amongst the goodies that people are receiving in their baskets. I came across a recipe for a salad that has kohlrabi in it and it sounded very tasty. Here's the link:http://www.thetasteoforegon.com/2010/06/07/embracing-the-unfamiliar-%E2%80%94-kohlrabi-anyone/
Hope this is of some use to you.
Peace,
David Levy
