Daikon Radish Salad
Daikon radishes are milder in flavor compared to the more common pink varieties but still have a crisp texture. In fact, their flavor tends to vary throughout the vegetable. The bottom is usually more poignant, and the top tends to be sweeter. Taking after its main ingredient, this daikon radish salad recipe (adapted from Platings and Pairings) has many different marvelous flavors in one dish. You’ll want to pair it with everything!
- 1 pound daikon radish
- 1 tbs sugar
- 1/2 tbs red pepper powder (optional)
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 green onions sliced thin
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 1/2 tbs white vinegar
Peel the radish and cut it into thin strips.
Place the radish in a medium bowl and toss with red pepper powder, sugar, salt, green onion, and garlic.
Sprinkle the mixture with vinegar and mix well.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
