Kohlrabi and Summer Squash Salad

I like to try different salad recipes throughout the spring and summer months, mainly because I prefer to cook less 🙂 I especially love going to farmer’s Markets and roadside stands for their fresh produce. During last weekend’s trip to the farmer’s market, I picked up some summer squash and cucumber, and my boss was kind enough to share some of the kohlrabi from his own garden.

I, of course, made a salad.


romaine lettuce

baby spinach

summer squash



grape tomatoes

  1. Rinse all the vegetables. Pat dry with a towel.
  2. Peel and slice the kohlrabi and the summer squash, and place into a bowl.
  3. Break the lettuce up into bite size pieces and put into the bowl.
  4. Add the spinach.
  5. Slice the cucumber, and add them along with the grape tomatoes to the bowl.
  6. Toss the salad to mix.


  • Try different types of lettuce.
  • Grow as much of your produce as possible.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve with burgers and oven baked sweet potato fries.
