Julienne daikon salad
I’m going to introduce a simple salad. I often make daikon salads but the ingredients except daikon radish are various depending on my mood. Today I added red onion, broccoli sprouts, and cherry tomatoes to make my salad look better. However, they are completely optional. So basically, all you need is daikon radish.
I tend to write a long introduction or explanation before we get down to the recipe. I’m sure I don’t need to do that this time.
There is only one thing I want to tell you. “Please make sure to use the part near the leaves of the daikon radish.”
You can see the reason in this article below.
I also prepared 鰹削り節 (katsuo kezuribushi) / bonito flakes as toppings. Bonito flakes really go well with daikon radish.
The bonito flakes I used this time is a rare product of extremely thin shaved pieces of 本枯節 (hon-kare-bushi).
Please check my post below if you think “what is hon-kare-bushi?” now.
This bonito flake is really delicious and melts in your mouth. If you are in Japan, you can order at a shop called “伏高 (hushitaka) in the Tsukiji market.
I’ll add some bonito flake products in case you’re not in Japan.
Of course, you can use any bonito flakes for this dish. In this case, it’s just toppings and not the main ingredient.
OK? Let’s get started!
Thank you for allowing me to share my recipe with you. I hope to see you again soon.
