Prep Time: 15 mins

Total Time: 15 mins

Serves: 4


  • 250 gram daikon, peeled and cut into 2 inch matchsticks
  • 50 gram carrot, peeled and cut into 2 inch matchsticks
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • Dressing
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon drinking water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Place daikon and carrot in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Gently massage the salt into the vegetables, then set aside for 5 to 10 minutes. This step is essential to draw out excess liquid from the vegetables, so your salad will be crunchy instead of limpy.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all the dressing ingredients and whisk lightly to combine. Set aside.
  3. Squeeze the daikon and carrot and place them in a new bowl. Pour the dressing and lightly toss to combine. Serve at room temperature or chilled (I like the chilled version better).
