Sauted Kale with Kohlrabi

1 1/4 lb peeled kohlrabi bulbs
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
2 lbs (2 bunches) kale, stems and rins removed
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 cup roasted pistachios, finely chopped

Slice kohlrabi very thinly. Whisk together in large bowl lime zest and juice, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper each. Toss kohlrabi with dressing.

Finely chop kale. Heat remaining 2 tbsp olive oil in a heavy 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Saute garlic until pale golden, about 30 seconds. add kale by the handful, turning and stirring with tongs and adding more kale as the volume reduced in the skillet. When all the kale is wilted, saute with 1/2 tsp salt until just tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature. Toss with kohlrabi and dressing and serve.
