This post is for all my Eatwell Farm friends who have a 50% chance of getting radishes in their boxes this week. I never realized that grating a radish could yield such a beautiful color and texture. At first, when I tasted this salad, I was a bit dubious, but after eating it for a minute or so, I was addicted!! I never thought I'd be addicted to radishes!! I again have Miriam Kasin Hospodar from Heaven's Banquet to thank for this one.
Sesame Radish Salad
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon brown mustard seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 cups grated radishes
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Liquid seasoning (such as Bragg's amino acids) or salt
Toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
Heat the oil in a small skillet. Add the mustard and sesame seeds. Saute until the sesame seeds are golden brown.
Pour the hot oil immediately over the radishes. Add the lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Let cool to room temperature, then stir in a few drops of sesame oil and the cilantro.
