Author Notes

I ate this salad in a restaurant in Nazareth once, and have been copy-catting it ever since. Originally it was made with a generous amount of pine nuts. But since I have free access to a pecan tree, I make it often with pecans, and sometimes with walnuts, for the Omega 3. —Hummusit

What You'll Need
  • 1 large kohlrabi, julienned
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup roasted nuts (from the kinds mentioned above; pine, pecan, or walnut)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil, to dress the salad
  1. Toss all ingredients according to their order, and enjoy!

This is a great summer salad! Made it exactly as it's described except 2 small/med kohlrabi. Delicious, light, tangy. I sliced the kohlrabi on my mandolin then cut to julienne strips. Like something you'd get at a fancy restaurant but simple to put together.

I love raw kohlrabi and its plentiful now. So I plan to try this!
