Daikon Umeboshi Dressing Salad

Friday, July 23rd, 2010
Daikon salad with umeboshi dressing is light and refreshing. It's simple and it gives you another use for daikon when you have left overs.

1 tablespoon of umeboshi minced
1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of water
2 tablespoons of canola oil or vegetable oil
2 cups of daikon cut julienne and use the top portion of the daikon

1) Mince the umeboshi.
2) Mix the umeboshi, water, vinegar and sugar and mix until the sugar is dissolved. Add vegetable oil and mix again. (If you have a salad dressing emulsifier use that or just put in a jar and shake)
3) Cut the daikon julienne and add 2 tablespoons of the umeboshi dressing and mix well. Taste and add more if you prefer.
4) Serve and drizzle a little of the ume on top. If you have some shiso, you can top it off with thinly sliced shiso for a little green.

Pull the seed out and use the edge of the knife to scrape off the ume.
