Cilantro Lime Kohlrabi Slaw


Another twist on a tasty kohlrabi slaw. The pepper adds a little kick to the subtle kohlrabi flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups kohlrabi -cut into matchsticks or grated in a food processor -about three x 4 inch bulbs (or you could substitute sliced fennel, apple, jicama, cucumber, or cabbage for part of the kohlrabi for more diversity)

  • ½ cup chopped cilantro ( one small bunch)

  • half of a jalapeno -minced

  • 1/4 cup chopped scallion

  • orange zest from one orange, and juice

  • lime zest from one lime, and juice

Citrus Dressing :

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil

  • ¼ Cup fresh orange juice ( juice form one orange)

  • 1/8 Cup lime juice plus 1 T ( juice from one large lime), more to taste

  • 1/4 Cup honey ( or agave syrup)

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

  • 1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar

instructions

Trim and peel kohlrabi. ( I normally have to peel twice to get thru the thick skin). Cut off two ends. Cut in half from top to bottom. Thinly slice, rotate and slice again, making 1/4 inch matchsticks.

Place in large bowl with chopped cilantro, scallions, finly chopped jalapeño ( 1/2), lime zest and orange zest.

Whisk dressing together in a small bowl. Toss with salad. Refrigerate until serving. Garnish with zest and cilantro. This tastes goo the next day too.
