Kohlrabi and turnips are two delightful vegetables that are often overlooked. They are versatile and delicious and play off each other well with the added unique flavor of cucumber.

Sprinkle cucumbers, turnips and kohlrabi with salt. Soak for 20 minutes in a bath of ice and cold water. Drain vegetables from ice bath. Place in glass bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and stir. Allow to sit for an hour and serve; the longer this salad sits, the more pickled it becomes. Can be stored for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
