Pickled Asian Ginger Salad
My fascination with the whiffle ball bat looking Daikon played a large part in this dish. This large radish is shaped like an overgrown white carrot, and has a mild, sweet taste and texture similar to water chestnuts. It is pleasant to eat on its own, and it provides a mild sweetness to serve as the base for this pickled Asian inspired salad.
The sweetness of the veggies and acidic bite of the vinegar make for a pleasing balance in this salad. It's one of the few pickling experiments I've ever braved, and its pretty simple and quite delicious. Don't fear the pickle! Dive right in and get your eat on. Happy eating!
