Smashed Radishes in Soy Dressing

  • 2 bunches small radishes
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1tablespoon unrefined sugar, or agave nectar. or honey
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger juice
  • cilantro for garnish

Use the bottom of a heavy drinking glass, or any blunt object you may have in your kitchen, to slightly crush but not completely mash the radishes. (The point of the smashing is not only stress relief; it is so that dressing can get into flesh.) Sprinkle radishes all over with salt, put them in a bowl, and set aside for about 15 minutes at room temperature. Combine vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, peanut oil, sesame oil and fresh ginger juice. Drain the liquid from the radishes and pour dressing over them. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
