  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: 15

Ingredients

  • SALAD
  • 2 1/2 cups of finely grated white turnips (rabioles- approx. 7-8 medium ones)
  • 1/3 of a coriander bunch, chopped
  • DRESSING
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp nuoc-mâm sauce (see recipe below)
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp oil (I use sunflower or safflower)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 small hot pepper, chopped (or 1/4 tsp red chill pepper flakes)
  • TO SERVE
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Tbsp chopped nuts (cashews or peanuts)
  • A dash of sea salt or fleur de sel (optional)
  • NUOC-MAM SAUCE
  • 4 Tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (or lime juice)
  • 2 tsp grated carrots
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper sauce

Directions

  • NUOC-MAM SAUCE
  • Prepare the nuoc-mâm sauce: Just mix all the nuoc-nâm ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. You'll only need a bit of this sauce. The rest can be kept in the fridge for up to 1 week - it is a vietnamese classic!
  • SALAD
  • 1. Mix your finely grated white turnips and coriander together.
  • 2. Mix the dressing ingredients together (maple syrup, nuoc-mâm, soy sauce, oil, sesame oil and hot pepper).
  • 3. Add the dressing to the salad and toss well.
  • 4. Just before serving, sprinkle lemon juice and chopped nuts on top. Sprinkle a dash of sea salt or fleur de sel on top (optional).

Notes

Featuring: White turnips (rabioles) or daikon radish, coriander, carrots and garlic.

This is a nice fresh and refreshing salad that goes great with asian dishes. It is best served fresh. You can also make it with daikon radish.
