Kohlrabi, Granny Smith Apple, Chive & Sesame Oil Salad

This is from the Lemonade cookbook and is decent, although I don’t know if I’d go to the market to get the ingredients just to make this. Seems to be missing some sort of tang. However, will keep the recipe so that I will know what to do when I get kohlrabi that comes in my produce box!

Kohlrabi, Granny Smith Apple, Chive and Sesame Oil Slaw

Yield: 4 cups


  • 1/2 lb. Kohlrabi
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple, halved lengthwise & cored
  • 1/2 cup Chives, chopped
  • 2 TBSP Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp Coarse Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Trim and peel the kohlrabi. Thinly slice the kohlrabi bulb into matchsticks (or grate with a grater). Do the same with the apple, cutting it to be the same size as the kohlrabi.
  2. Combine the kohlrabi, apple, chives, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Toss the slaw until the ingredients are well blended. Feel free to make the slaw 1-2 hours in advance. The flavor gets better as it sits. Serve chilled.
