It was "Columbus day" today. Columbus found the Americas about 510 years ago so it's a big holiday as celebration. Since a happy monday today and yesterday I met one of my friend after a long time who came form Japan, I had wine kind of too much last night because I was so happy! That's why this morning I wanted to have something refreshing.
Do you know Japanese ume plum (called umeboshi)? It's a kind of pickles. It's really sour and refreshing.
It has a lot of citric acid so makes you recovery from fatigue and to my joy it even helps recovering from a hangover! That's great so I made a salad with ume plum dressing.
Daikon radish salad with ume plum dressing
- 0.75 pound of daikon radish
- 1/2 of green onion
- 1 sheet of seaweed sheet
- 0.15 oz of dried bonito shaves
Ume plum dressing
- 3 pieces of ume plum
- 3 Tbs of olive oil
- 1/2 Tbs of soy sauce
- 1/4 tsp of wasabi
1, Remove a seed from ume plum and chop it to a paste with a knife then mix all ingredients of dressing
2, Cut a daikon radish into julienne strips (called Katsura-muki) and cut into thin sticks
3, Cut green onion into thin slices
4, Shred a seaweed sheet and put on a plate. Place cut daikon radish on it and put green onion and dried bonito shaves then put ume plum dressing on it
