  • 1 cup matchstick-cut carrots

  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion

  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  1. Place radishes (or daikon), carrot and onion in a medium bowl. Cover with cold water and let soak for 5 minutes. Drain.

It is 1:25 am EST and I am still up. I've got to quit reading these recipes so late at night. After reading this one, I'm ready to make it right now. I'm actually glad I don't have the radish on hand or I would give it a try. lol
