If you love French Bistro salads with bacon and poached eggs, try our innovation made with julienne cut kohlrabi instead. This Kohlrabi Bistro Salad with Poached Egg has tarragon and a tangy Dijon vinaigrette that makes it utterly delicious! Bonus it is ready in only 30 minutes.


Units Scale
  • Splash white vinegar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 6 cups peeled and julienne-cut kohlrabi
  • 1 head Belgian endive, cut into bias strips
  • 4 strips thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. Bring several inches of water plus a splash of white vinegar to a boil over high heat in a wide sauté pan or deep skillet. Crack eggs one at a time into a small ramekin and then slide into the water. Keep an eye on the boil/simmer of the water. The temperature of the water should drop from the cold eggs. When it comes back up to a simmer, reduce the heat to maintain a very gentle simmer. If the water is boiling, reduce heat. Cook eggs 4 minutes for runny yolks. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with a clean towel.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk cider vinegar, shallot, and Dijon in a large salad bowl. Whisk in oil, tarragon, salt, and pepper. Add kohlrabi and endive and toss to coat.
  3. Divide salad among four dinner plates. Top with crumbled bacon and the hot poached egg.


Whole30: To make this Whole30 complaint, use compliant bacon.
