Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Peel kohlrabi and cut in half. Cut each half into 1/4-inch-thick half moons. Make cuts along the flat side of each half moon, going almost to the top, to make a comb shape. Toss the kohlrabi with salt in a large bowl and let stand for 15 minutes. Rinse with cold water and pat dry.

  • Meanwhile, whisk chili oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, peppercorn oil, garlic, ginger and chile in a large bowl. Add the kohlrabi and toss to coat. Fold in cilantro and scallions.


Tips: Dark soy sauce (sometimes called black soy sauce) is thicker than regular soy sauce, with a touch of sweetness. Thick soy sauce is similar, but gets a stickier texture and its sweetness from molasses. In a pinch combine equal parts regular soy sauce and molasses as an alternate for either.

Sichuan peppercorn oil is infused with cracked Sichuan peppercorns that create a mouth-numbing sensation.
