Cruciferous Crunch Salad with Pomegranate Dressing
I’m a texture gal. Gimme all the crunch! The mouthfeel of this salad is just pure #goalzzzz. I can eat bowl after bowl and never get sick of it.

2 cups shredded red cabbage
1 kohlrabi, peeled, ends trimmed, julienned
3 radishes, thinly sliced
1 jalapeño, stem removed, thinly sliced crosswise (optional)

2 whole scallions, trimmed and chopped
½ cup pomegranate seeds
⅓ cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
1 teaspoon soy sauce
