Grated Radish with Ponzu and Sesame

December 06, 2021


This simple side dish is based on a traditional Japanese way to eat daikon radish. In this recipe, I use Local Roots watermelon radish, which gives the dish a bright and beautiful pink color. The dish is light, but has complex flavors and can be a wonderful addition to a meal of rice and miso soup. 


Serves 1-2


Ingredients


1 watermelon radish

2 Tbsp. ponzu sauce, store bought or freshly made

1 tsp. toasted sesame seed


Directions

  1. Wash and peel the radish. 
  2. Grate the radish with a microplane or fine grater. 
  3. Grind the sesame with a spice grinder or mortar and pestle.
  4. Place the radish into a bowl and top with ponzu sauce. 
  5. Garnish with sesame. 
  6. Enjoy!
