Spicy Kohlrabi Salad
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.Advertisement
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.
