Pairing of the Day: July 25-29, 2011

Slide 1 of 5

Kohlrabi, Fennel and Blueberry Salad

Kohlrabi tastes a lot like a broccoli stem, but it's milder and sweeter and the texture is crisper. Chef Stephanie Izard of Chicago's Girl & The Goat thinks it's an underappreciated vegetable, so she makes it the star of her delicious salad, served raw in very thin slices. In fact, she likes the dish so much that she takes some home to eat on the couch after service a few times a week.

Pairing: Substantial but lively Viognier: 2010 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc–Viognier or 2009 McManis Viognier.
