After moving to California, I found myself jumping into summer produce faster than I would have in the midwest. The beginning of June brings zucchini followed shortly by sweet corn and tomatoes. However, there’s so much good spring/early summer produce that I miss because let’s face it- I’d make everything out of fresh summer tomatoes and sweet corn if I could. This soba noodle salad features two ingredients I often miss because of my excitement: kohlrabi and cabbage.
The beautiful color of the cabbage and the crunch from the kohlrabi is a splendid addition to a cold noodle salad. The produce holds a great crisp, even after being dressed. Pack this salad for an easy work lunch or toss it in the cooler for a summer road trip. Don’t have kohlrabi? Just add an extra handful of cabbage.
