We enjoy this. I have made it several times. I reduce the sugar to 1T of agave.

I halved this recipe, since it was just the DH and I dining tonight, and served it with "Tilapia in Thai Sauce" (which was actually haddock, since that's what we can get fresh here in Downeast Maine). I kind of screwed it up, as I forgot to squeeze out the shredded daikon and carrot before pouring the dressing over it. Nevertheless, it was still delicious, and I intend to make it correctly very soon!

MMMMMMmmmmmmmm! Sometimes I get cravings for Asian pickles. This salad is perfect for that. Sweet, salty, sour, sesame goodness. It's best with sugar, but I usually use splenda and it's turns out fine. Finely shredded cabbage, red radishes, and bean sprouts also benefit from this treatment. Thanks for the great, simple recipe! Five stars for quick, easy, healthy goodness!
