  • 3 Crispin apples, sliced lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Dash of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh Italian parsley
  • 10 kalamata olives, pitted
  • 3 cups Kohlrabi micro greens, washed and dried


  1. Combine the sherry vinegar, shallot, and salt in a large mixing bowl and let aside for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the pepper, olive oil, and herbs. Toss the apples in the bowl with the vinaigrette to coat them.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let aside for at least 1 hour, but up to 2 hours, to allow the apples to get to room temperature.
  4. Heat a grill pan or prepare a grill on medium-high heat. Remove the apples from the vinaigrette and place the apples on the grill, flat side down, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned.
  5. Turn the apples over and brown for another 5 minutes on the other side.
  6. In the bowl, there should be around 8 tablespoons of vinaigrette left. In a food processor, small chopper, or blender, combine 3 tablespoons of the vinaigrette with the olives. Process until a fine paste forms.
  7. Toss the leftover vinaigrette with the micro greens in a medium bowl.
  8. Place the greens in the center of 6 plates and top with an apple half, cored side up, slightly fanned out.
  9. Drizzle some olive dressing over the top, or squirt it with the squeeze bottle in an artistic manner.
  10. Serve right away.
