A way to make black radish salad.
Raw radish with my brush, then peeled. I usually clean it like a potato, with a knife for cleaning vegetables.
First we cut the cleaned radish with almost transparent plates, then chop into thin strips. You can use the grater for Korean carrots.
Now that the radish has been sliced, a small but solvable problem arises. This vegetable can be said “hearty”, and extremely fragrant. For those who want to remove the sharp smell, I advise you to sprinkle shredded radish with a pinch of salt, mix thoroughly, squeeze, leave for 20-30 minutes at room temperature.
We clean the ripe sweet and sour apple from the rind, cut the core. Cut the apple into strips.
Beets cook in uniform or bake in the oven. Recently, I really enjoyed baking beets in a sleeve in the oven. This process practically does not require any attention, the main thing is to remember to turn on the kitchen timer, since it takes about 1 hour to bake.
So, clean the cooled beets, cut into the same thin straws, like other vegetables.
Chop green onions finely. Instead of green onions, you can take leeks. Ordinary onion in such a salad can also be added, but be sure to pre-marinate for 10-15 minutes in hot boiled water with vinegar to remove the bitterness.
Combine all the vegetables in a deep salad bowl, it remains to prepare the dressing sauce.
In a porcelain bowl, squeeze the juice from half of the lime (you can substitute lemon), add soy sauce, brown sugar and salt. Mix the ingredients so that the salt and sugar are completely dissolved, gradually add the extra virgin olive oil of the first cold-pressed variety. Rub in a mortar or grind black peppercorns, add to the finished dressing.
Pour the dressing sauce in a bowl of vegetables.
Thoroughly mix the ingredients so that the sauce is absorbed, leave in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
