kohlrabi

In German it means, kohl (cabbage) plus rabi (turnip). I'm curious, can you get this in your country? I'm asking because the vege. is alien to me until I arrived here. They are popular in Hungarian househoulds and great in soup :) In desparation, I use it to substitute turnip when I made spring rolls few months back. Boy! was I glad that it turned out as good as using turnip.
Perhaps you can try a salad
