The recipe was inspired by the daikon kimchee pickles that are served at the start of a Korean meal. These are great served on the side or sliced up in sandwiches or salads. They can be eaten as soon as they're chilled, but the flavors improve after a few days. From Vegetarian Times magazine(July 2008)
