Mock Potato Salad by Aida Mellenkamp (Chowhound) courtesy of Alexandra Soltow

Kohlrabi may look like an extraterrestrial, but it tastes like a combo of familiar vegetables: broccoli, celery and potato. By tossing it with classic American potato salad ingredients, the relatively unknown veggie becomes approachable and outright delicious. [NOTE: Not enough kohlrabi to prepare this recipe? Fill it out with cooked potatoes or even broccoli!]

3 lbs. kohlrabi, peeled and cut into chunks, about 8 medium
2 ribs celery, chopped, about 1/2 cup
1/2 medium red onion, chopped, about 3/4 cup
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 Tbs. finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
2 Tbs. whole-grain Dijon mustard
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
1 Tbs. honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Place kohlrabi in  medium pot of  salted water; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low; simmer until tender with a few pieces breaking off slightly at  edges, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together remaining ingredients in  large bowl until thoroughly blended; reserve in refrigerator. When kohlrabi is ready, drain well and add to mayonnaise mixture. Stir until kohlrabi is well coated; taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours, before serving.
