If you have never had kohlrabi before, it is a member of the cabbage family, although it looks closer to a turnip. Kohlrabi has a sweet and slightly peppery flavor, and is nice and crisp. It kind of reminds me of a sweet radish, you can eat it raw or cooked.

It combines great with the sweet and tart apples to make a lovely crisp salad

Toast the pistachios

  1. In a large dry pan, heat the chopped pistachios on medium-high heat to toast them for 1-2 minutes – watch them because they will burn fast!

Prep the produce

  1. Use a knife to peel the skin off the kohlrabi.
  2. Peel the apple (if you wish, you can leave the apple peel on) and slice both the apple and the kohlrabi thin and then cut into matchsticks.

Assemble the slaw

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the apple and kohlrabi matchsticks, the green onions, the garlic, the juice of the whole lime and the tahini.
  2. Add the pistachios and the cilantro to the bowl. 
  3. Toss well and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Storage Information

This salad will keep for 2-3 days, however the apples can oxidize and start to turn brown. Make sure they are well tossed in the lemon juice. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
