Sauteed Greens With Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi is often eaten raw, but is excellent cooked as well. Here is a simple recipe of kolhrabi with greens.
Ingredients
1  kohlrabi bulb peeled
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 bunch kale, collards, or swiss chard
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Preparation

Very thinly slice kohlrabi with slicer.

Whisk together lime zest and juice, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss kohlrabi with dressing.

Finely chop greens. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Sauté garlic until pale golden, about 30 seconds. Add greens by the handful, turning and stirring with tongs and adding more greens as volume in skillet reduces. When all of the greens are wilted, sauté with 1/2 teaspoon salt until just tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature. Toss greens with kohlrabi and nuts.
