Kohlrabi Salad with Cilantro and Lime

from Feasting at Home


  • 6 cups kohlrabi -cut into matchsticks , or grated in a food processor -about three 4 inch bulbs (or you could substitute sliced fennel, apple, jicama, cucumber, or cabbage for part of the kohlrabi for more diversity) 
  • 1/2 C chopped cilantro ( one small bunch) 
  •  half of a jalapeno -minced 
  • 1/4 C chopped scallion or candy onion
  • orange zest from one orange 
  • lime zest from one lime 

Citrus Honey Vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 C olive oil 
  • 1/4 C fresh orange juice ( juice form one orange) 
  • 1/8 C lime juice plus 1 T ( juice from one large lime) 
  • 1/4 C honey 
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt 
  • 1 T rice wine vinegar 


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 good the next day too.
