I have always liked the idea of radishes more than the fact of radishes. They look so colorful in salads, and they’re so good for us… but I’m a sweet tooth girl, and I just never really warmed up to radishes of any variety.
Until this technique crossed my path. And it’s so simple! My world has changed…
– Slice a 4-6″ piece of daikon radish as thin as you can (a mandolin is helpful but not at all necessary)
– Spread in as few layers as possible in a shallow dish. Sprinkle generously with Ume Plum vinegar*, cover with a flat dinner plate, and let rest 10 minutes. Stir and turn the radishes, cover, and let them rest a few minutes more.
– Delicious on salads or as a side garnish.
*Available at most health food stores or in the international section of a regular grocery store.
