This crisp, crunchy salad from Martha Stewart is beautifully balanced in flavor.
2 mediums heads garlic
Zest and juice from 1 lemon
½ teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium purple kohlrabi, trimmed
1 ½ cups arugula greens
¼ cup toasted almonds
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Remove 1 garlic clove from 1 head, and very finely grate, setting aside ⅛ teaspoon. Wrap remaining heads of garlic in foil, and roast until very soft and golden inside, about 1 hour. Unwrap; let cool.
2. Meanwhile, whisk together grated garlic, lemon zest and juice, paprika, mustard, ½ teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Squeeze roasted garlic from skins, and add 2 tablespoons to bowl, reserving remainder for another use. Stir to combine but leave very chunky. Stir in oil (do not completely incorporate).
3. Shave kohlrabi very thinly on a mandoline. Divide among 4 plates; season with ½ teaspoon salt. Spoon dressing over kohlrabi, then top with arugula leaves and almonds.
