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.

  • Step 1

    Plan ahead : Make Hot Sauce

    Blend until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. This will keep for one week in an airtight container in the refrigerator

    Makes about ½ cup (110 g)

    Prep time : 10 minutes

  • Step 2

    Sweet Chili Sauce

    Whisk together or blend ingredients thoroughly.

    Prep time : 15 minutes

  • Step 3

    Salad

    Place prepared daikon on individual plates and garnish with cilantro and almonds. Dress with sweet chili sauce right before serving.

    Stored individually, Sweet Chili Sauce will last one week and the daikon will last three days in the refrigerator.

    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.
