There was a time when I could only get kohlrabi in a CSA box. It seemed somewhat exotic and I usually just peeled it, cut it into sticks, and ate it. I would silently congratulate myself on my adventurous eating.

These days, kohlrabi is at regular grocery stores too. If you’ve never eaten it before, you’re in for a real treat. It’s kind of like eating very mild cabbage in the form of a carrot stick. Wait, that’s NOT your ideal food? ;) Okay, then carry on turning it into a chicken salad sandwich. It ends up on a croissant, and I’m pretty sure that’s on your list of favorite things to eat.

Chicken salad can quickly become an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink-situation with cashews, almonds, grapes, dried cranberries, curry powder, and/or avocado, but this version sticks to the classics.  Leftover rotisserie chicken is ideal here, but you can also quickly poach your chicken in a skillet.

    Looks lovely, Meggan! This would definitely spruce up my lunchtime work sandwich! Now I’m going to look up kohlrabi on Google. I’m a little embarrassed to admit I don’t really know what it is, let alone know how to cook with it!
