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 (or 1 garlic scape strand, chopped)
1/2 tsp chili pepper sauce


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.

Notes

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

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.
