I love the fresh taste of radish. This radish salad is what my mother used to make when we were kids. We had a little veggie garden. Whenever we harvested some radish from our garden. She would always make this salad.
a bunch of radish, sesame oil (2 teaspoon), minced garlic (1 clove), vinegar (1 table spoon), sugar (a pinch), salt and pepper.
What to do:
- Cut the radishes in rough chunks, and use the green part of the radish as well.
- In a small pot, add about 3 cup of water, bring to boil. Add green part of the radish, simmer for 1-2 minutes. As soon as the leaves change into darker green colour, take them off the heat, drain and run it through with some cold water.
- To make a dressing: in a wok at medium heat, add sesame oil and minced garlic and cook until garlicky aroma comes out. Then add vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer for half minutes and then take it off from heat.
- Cut the radish leaves into 1 inch length and toss them with radish chunks and salad dressing.
- Ready to serve.
Note: This is a typical Chinese salad dressing. Sometimes, people add minced ginger, shallot and chilli together with garlic to cook in sesame oil first, then add vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.
