Light Green Crunchy Salad Recipe
Serves 6 as a side dish
If using the kohlrabi, cut it into manageable chunks, then cut those chunks into thin planks, about 1/4-inch thick. Then sliver up those planks into 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks (this is what is known as a julienne cut). Don't worry if the slivers aren't neat and tidy.
Very thinly slice the celery crosswise, then do the same with the hearts of romaine so that you have thin ribbons of lettuce. Place it all in a serving bowl, along with the kohlrabi.
Whisk together the rice vinegar, olive oil, mustard and salt and pepper in a small bowl (or shake it up in a small container with a lid). Toss the vegetables with the dressing and serve, topped with the pea shoots, if desired.
