Makes 4 -6 servings as a side


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

1/2 cup chopped cilantro (one small bunch)

Half of a jalapeno, minced

1/4 cup scallion, chopped

Orange zest from one orange, and juice

Lime zest from one lime, and juice

Citrus Dressing

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup fresh orange juice ( juice from one orange)

1/8 cup lime juice plus 1 Tbsp ( juice from one large lime), more to taste

1/4 cup honey (or agave syrup)

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar


Trim and peel the kohlrabi. Cut off two ends. Cut in half from top to bottom. Thinly slice, rotate and slice again, making 1/4 inch matchsticks.

Place in a large bowl with chopped cilantro, scallions, finely chopped jalapeño, lime zest and orange zest.

Whisk dressing together in a small bowl. Toss with salad. Refrigerate until serving. Garnish with zest and cilantro. Enjoy!
