I have recently discovered the japanese Daikon radish – also called Mooli by some- and I love adding it to side salads or eating it alongside smoked fish. Its acidity is unrivalled to help digest salmon or mackerel and it would go brilliantly with red meat too. Paired with seasonnal pomegranate and a refreshing cucumber it is the most perfect palate cleansing side dish. Don’t you love those colours, too?! Beautiful food is more satisfying…
- 1/1 daikon radish
- 1/2 seeded pomegranate
- 1/2 cucumber
- Dash of pomegranate syrup or molasse
- Balsamic vinegar 1 Tbsp
- A splash of olive oil
Daikon is a wonder vegetable and it will help break down the fat in anything you eat . It is a very “healing” food according to the Macrobiotic way and it also aids relaxation and acts as a diuretic. It is very useful as a weight loss support.
