  • 5 cups Korean radish, julienned
  • 2 stalks scallions

Dressing Ingredients


  • Wash and peel the radish. Using a sharp knife or a mandoline, julienne the radish and add them to a large bowl.
  • Add in the ingredients for the dressing and massage it into the julienned radish until it's well combined. Adjust for seasoning and serve.


  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. The longer it sits, the more juices will be released from the radish.
  • You can substitute daikon for Korean radish in this recipe.
  • Choosing a Korean radish:
    • Pick one that has a smooth, blemish free surface without any cracks. It should feel heavy for its size. They can be a light green color starting at the tops going halfway down the radish.
