Raw and Simple
This ultra simple salad makes a great (and very pretty) first course if you’re putting together an Asian–inspired meal. The sweet chili sauce is not only stunning to look at over the daikon noodles, but it is also a flavorful compliment to this mild radish.

Chef Tip : I used the Saladacco spiral slicer to make the daikon ribbons.
Health Note : Daikon radish contains an abundance of digestive enzymes, making it a wonderful digestive aid, particularly in metabolizing fats. It’s a very cleansing root vegetable that has been used traditionally as a diuretic and decongestant. Like others in its cruciferous family, it contains cancer–fighting properties and a good dose of vitamin C and potassium.
