Asian Kohlrabi and Apple Slaw

  • 1 large kohlrabi
  • 2 green apples
  • 1 3-inch piece ginger peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Toasted sesame seeds to garnish optional
  • Coarse or kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Using a knife carefully cut the skin and stems from the kohlrabi (the skin is very thick so a regular vegetable peeler won’t do the trick).  Sliver or grate the kohlrabi (if grating, use the largest holes of the grater). Place it in a large bowl.  Peel, core and sliver or grate the apples, then add them to the kohlrabi.
  • Place the ginger, mustard, olive oil, fish sauce, sesame oil and salt and pepper in a food processor fitted with the regular steel blade, or a blender, and processor until fully blended and smooth.  Toss the slaw with the dressing, garnish with sesame seeds if desired, and serve.
