Kohlrabi & Carrot Sesame Salad with Lime & Ginger Dressing.


This delicious and nutritious salad celebrates the humble, and seasonal Kohlrabi – a versatile vegetable, that is part of the brassica family (along with broccoli, kale, cauliflower etc.). Once peeling the beautiful kohlrabi, please do not toss away the green tops – as they can be chopped up and sautéed, or added to soups/stews – like Collard greens or Swiss chard. The toasted sesame and cashews, provide protein and heart-healthy fats – along with crunch! I highly recommend purchasing a spiralizer or julienne peeler – which is an essential kitchen tool for making this salad, and other creative vegetable-based dishes. Hope you enjoy this nutrient-dense, satisfying and sustainable recipe fam! If you try it at home, do leave your review in a comment below!
