How to make DAIKON AND CARROT SALAD with Homemade Dressing

  1. Wash, peel and cut daikon and radish into long juiliennes. You can even chop them into any size you prefer.
  2. TO MAKE THE DRESSING: In a small tight-lidded bottle, add all the dressing ingredients, close with the lid and shake well for a few seconds. Taste and adjust seasonings according to personal preference.
  3. Crush peanuts in a mortar pestle to a coarse mixture.
  4. Gather all the ingredients for the salad.
  5. Transfer all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
  6. Add the salad dressing and mix gently with two ladles or better yet with clean hands to mix the dressing thoroughly. Garnish with more peanuts and serve chilled.
  7. Enjoy refreshing Daikon and Carrot salad with fresh homemade tangy, chatpata, mildly sweet salad dressing. Who says that salads cannot be enjoyed in winters!

My Tip:

You can use any type of vegetable you prefer in the salad. Instead of raisins, you can use chopped dates, dried cranberries etc. Instead of peanuts, you can use walnuts or chopped almonds too. Serve the salad slightly chilled.
