Calories: 173

Serves: 1


1 small head kohlrabi, outer leaves trimmed

1 handful rocket, washed and drained

1 small endive, quartered lengthwise

1 handful core frisée leaves (as these are the sweetest)

6-8 cashew nuts, whole or halved

1 dessert spoon walnut oil

1 tblsp apple cider or white wine vinegar

several sprigs of fresh tarragon

small bunch chives, chopped finely

salt and pepper as required

Cooking instructions:

1. Coarsely grate the kohlrabi and plunge into ice-cold water to prevent browning.

2. Place the cashew nuts into a frying pan over low heat and dry fry until golden. Remove from pan to prevent overheating and set to one side.

3. Mix walnut oil, chopped tarragon, chopped chives and apple cider vinegar as dressing.

4. Arrange all the leaves into a large salad bowl, top with grated drained Kohlrabi and cashew nuts and toss with dressing.  Serve as main course salad.
