[Recipe] Kohlrabi Cucumber Salad with a Mint Sumac Yogurt Dressing

I love this salad and so happy to share the recipe! The kohlrabi provides a nice crunch, with a creamy yet light tasting dressing. Do not omit the mascarpone cheese, as it adds to the texture of the dressing.

This salad was adapted from the Jerusalem cookbook and I made some variations to make this my own including adding in cucumbers. If you only learn to make one new salad recipe this summer, make it this one.
