Kohlrabi-Mango and Radish Salad

24 06 2014

Thanks to our CSA share from Fresh Fork Market, this was my first time using kohlrabi. After doing a little research on how to prep it, I knew I wanted to make a salad or slaw with it. This salad is easy, so tasty and crunchy, not to mention pretty! After all, we do eat with our eyes first and I couldn’t wait to dig in!

Kohlrabi-Mango and Radish Salad

The following makes a salad for 2 (compliments of This Girl’s Gotta Eat):

  • 1/2 kohlrabi, outer layer cut away and sliced into matchsticks
  • 1/2 large mango, diced
  • 4 radishes, cut in half and sliced thinly
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup matchstick carrots
  • 2-3 Tbsp red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 poblano pepper, seeds removed and finely diced
  • Couple green onions, diced
  • Rice vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Remove the branches and cut the kohlrabi bulb in half. Carefully using a large, sharp knife cut the outer layer away. Slice into matchstick size pieces.

Add to a medium bowl with mango, radishes, carrots, red onion, peppers and green onions. Toss with rice vinegar, olive oil and salt to taste. Garnish with parsley and serve with a protein of your choice. Pictured above is baked cod.
