Pressed Radish Salad

Pressed Radish Salad Pressed Radish Salad Julie Daniluk 2019

This salad is almost like making a fresh pickle. Pressing veggies with some vinegar and salt has the same effect as cooking. It makes the dish more digestible yet preserves the active living enzymes in the plants.


4 cups red radishes, sliced thin

1 cup black radishes, sliced thin

1 cup apple, sliced thin

2 tbsp tamari (wheat-free)

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

รณ cup fresh basil, chopped

2 tbsp sesame seeds


1. Place sliced radishes and apples in a large mixing bowl. Add the dressing and mix well.

2. Place another bowl over the vegetables and press down. Weigh the bowl down with a jug of water or another heavy object.

3. Press vegetables for 25 minutes. Remove bowl, and drain off out excess liquid (about 1/3 of a cup).

4. Top with chopped basil and sesame seeds.
