Apple Daikon Slaw Recipe

Pin It
I love trying new foods!  As a kid I spent a lot of time eating delicious and fresh veggies straight out of my Grandpas garden.  But as I've gotten older I've noticed that I eat less and less produce.  It's such a shame because produce is so amazing and delicious.  A couple months ago I started to participate in a produce co-op called Bountiful Baskets and I always find something new and adventurous in the basket.  My most recent basket had Daikon in it.  Daikon is basically a big white radish.  I looked up some recipes online and found this one that really inspired me.  It was quick, easy, and required very few ingredients. 

You'll need 1 Daikon, An Apple (any flavor I chose Cameo), Red Onion, Cilantro, Rice Vinegar, and Olive Oil.

Julienne your Daikon & Apple.  Thinly slice 1/4 of a Red Onion, Grab a handful of Cilantro and give it a good chop.  Then you'll want to grate up some Ginger, I used about a tsp worth.

Add these ingredients to a large bowl along with about 1 TBSP of Olive Oil and 2 TBSP Rice Vinegar.  Add Salt & Pepper to your liking.  Stir everything together, taste, and adjust seasoning as desired.

Enjoy!  This is a fun side that is super crunchy and fresh tasting.  The cilantro and fresh ginger really add to the recipe.  My husband and I loved it and my 3 year old ate it too.
