Radish and Carrot Salad

This simple dish serves as a cool, refreshing break from spicier foods. You'll almost always see some version at a Korean meal. It's traditionally made with moo (sweet Korean radish), but daikon radish is more readily available and makes a fine substitute. Salting the daikon helps extract some of its bitterness.

  • Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 1/4 cup)


  • 2 cups (3-inch) julienne-cut peeled daikon radish
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (3-inch) julienne-cut carrot
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mirin (sweet rice wine)


Combine daikon and salt, tossing well to coat. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water; drain. Combine daikon and carrot.

Combine vinegar, sugar, and mirin, stirring until sugar dissolves. Drizzle over daikon mixture; toss to combine. Cover and chill.
