I usually brainstorm my meal ideas when I walk around the green market. This carrot salad isn't an exception. It was beginning of spring and the weather got warmer, so I wanted to make something colorful and picked up the carrots, purple kohlrabi and watermelon radishes at the Union Square Greenmarket. —Katrin

Yogurt and kohlrabi aren’t in the ingredient list are they?
