Asian Style Cabbage, Carrot, and Kohlrabi Salad with a Sweet Sesame Sauce

We tend to get a lot of cabbage and kohlrabi during our CSA over the summer. This is a great and quick recipe for you to use if you find you have a lot of it, as well. The dressing in this salad is sweet, salty, and sesame forward.
