Recently, Hyundai and Good Bite asked me to participate in David Lawrence’s “Appetite For Adventure”, which challenged 8 food bloggers to come up with recipes using unusual ingredients. I have to admit that I was quite shocked when the ingredient they presented me with was daikon radish. I see these large east Asian radishes all the time at our local farmer’s market, but I’ve never bought one before. What a mistake! They have a great flavor and texture and you can do a lot with them. I got 2 huge ones the other day for just $1 and made several different recipes with them. My favorite is this Daikon Radish Slaw that I used as one component of the Summer Roll recipe I made for “Appetite for Adventure”.

Not only is this dish perfect for a spring or summertime party when you’re feeding a crowd, but the kids I offered it to at our house the other day loved the beautiful colors and tasty dressing! Hopefully I lived up to the cooking challenge, but either way I think you’ll find this dish to be a total crowd pleaser.

  1. Ok, I passed by this today at the farmers market because I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Then, I come home and find a recipe on weelicious after doing a search. I’ll have to see if the same farmer still has daikon next week and I’ll definitely give this recipe a try. Thanks!
