1 cup farmer's cheese or cottage cheese, drained overnight in a cheesecloth-lined strainer
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup peeled and grated Granny Smith apple
1 tbsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
2 medium kohlrabies, peeled and grated
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a large bowl, stir cheese, cream, apple, salt, kohlrabies, and pepper until evenly combined; let sit for 10 minutes, so flavors can marry. Garnish with parsley before serving.
