I can hear you think right now! Kohlrabi….What in the world is Kohlrabi!?… maybe you know it by its other name: Turnip Cabbage. It’s not exactly turnip and not exactly cabbage, it’s turnip cabbage. A fresh white, green or purple vegetable, which not a lot of people seem to know, or ever used in a dish. This week I found it in my bag of organic vegetables I pick up every week at a local vegetable garden just outside my city. Kohlrabi is something I never used before, I’m not even sure if we have ever eaten it before. But hey, I love new things, it makes you creative. So let’s give this new veggie a try!

Since I had 2 super ripe avocado’s laying around and 3 huge, super ripe mango’s too I had to think of a way to combine these three….Noodles! Why not? Noodles, avocado, mango are great together and since kohlrabi is a cabbage I’m quite sure it’ll fit perfectly well in this avocado noodle salad!

I bet you can make this avocado noodle salad within 10 minutes if you’re good in peeling mango’s and avocado’s! It’s a super easy recipe and…super delicious and fresh! Top it off with some chopped chili pepper, that extra bite is perfect when it’s hot outside! It helps you to cool down a little. By the way, if you like it spicy, make sure you also check out this Rogan Josh Lamb curry and Delicious Beetroot Thoran. Both recipes from India, where they know how to cool down with spicy food!

Making this avocado noodle salad

This avocado noodle salad takes 3 easy steps.

  • Cut the kohlrabi and marinate in the tasty dressing
  • Cut the avocado and mango into little cubes ( 1/2 inch)
  • Cook the noodles

You can cut off the skin of the kohlrabi (soft parts of the skin can stay on) and after that cut it into round slices. Cut those sizes into long thin sticks, or whatever you like. If you have a spiralizer, you could use that! The thinner, the better it will mix into the salad later. Oh yeah, don’t get scared by the kohlrabi’s smell when you cut it, it has that typical but strong cabbage smell. It always makes me think ‘why am I eating this’, but then in the end it turns out fine :)… As for many Asian (inspired) dishes, a dressing with Soy sauce, ginger, garlic, lime and rice vinegar it’s nothing new, I just love that combination of flavors. It’s so freakin’ good!

  1. I’ve never heard of kohlrabi before! I’m tempted to ask someone at my local supermarket to point me to it… but I know just how that conversation is going to to go:
    “Hey! Can you point me to the KO-HOLE-RAA-BEE? ….Cole-rabbi? …..Kol-ray-bi?”

    Can’t wait to try it out though, I love mango salads, and fusing that into noodle form sounds great!

      Thanks, it’s a not so well-known vegetable I guess :) but I’d go for cole-rah-be probably.

    Sounds delightfully zesty. I’d go for it, but I wonder if there’s a substitution for the Kohlrabi? Some people here wouldn’t know what a vegetable was if it bit them on the nose. >_<

      Hi Leisel, You could use radish or parsnip as a substitute, those should work perfectly.

  3. This dish looks delicious! I like that you have a video on how to make it as well. The colors come together nicely in your pictures and I be the flavors do too! I am going to give this noodle dish a try.

  4. Definitely making this noodle salad tonight for a light dinner.. I love how quick, easy and flavorsome it is.
