I really wanted to like this recipe. The daikon got limp and soft. The red radishes lost all fire. Maybe more vinegar? More salt? It was just too bland for me.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Halve daikon lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with radishes and kosher salt. Let stand at room temperature, stirring occasionally, 1 hour.
  2. Drain in a colander (do not rinse) and return to bowl.
  3. Add vinegar, sugar, and ginger, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Transfer to an airtight container and chill, covered, shaking once or twice, at least 12 hours more (to allow flavors to develop).
  4. Can be chilled for up to 3 weeks.
