Asparagus and Daikon Salad

Today was a great day! I went hiking with Bob and Heather (and Winston!). We did Larch Mtn in 6.5 hours!

I had to stop and stretch on a rock. The moss made it nice and soft!

It was a great hike, even though the summit was fogged in. Winston did a great job too!

 Thanks guys for an awesome hike!

When I got home, it was all business. Into the kitchen I went to find a recipe for Daikon. And boy, did I thanks to Angela Liddon of

Asparagus and Daikon Salad

Adapted from Ohsheglows


10 asparagus stalks, cut into 1 inch pieces

2 daikons, washed, peeled and cut into circles


1 T olive oil

1/4 c. lemon juice

1 t. garlic powder

1 t. sea salt

1/2 t. ground pepper

1.5 T. mustard

1 T. water

1/2 t. maple syrup (to balance out mustard)

1/2 T. nutritional yeast (optional)

2 T. fresh chives

2 T. fresh dill

1 bunch green onions

1/2 c. edamame


Place veggies into steamer basket and steam for 5 five minutes, until you can put a fork through them.

 In the meantime, mix all dressing ingredients into large bowl.

 Add steamed veggies and mix to coat. Serve warm or cold.

The Daikon gives off a slight bitter taste which I enjoy. I am excited to try roasting these!! Let me know what you think!
