Korean Radish Salad

from Amy Valdez Schwemm, adapted from http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/musaengchae

This recipe works well with large radishes, such as daikon radishes or black Spanish radishes, but small radishes work also.

1 lb grated radishes
1 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons chile flakes
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon sesame seed

Grate radishes into a bowl (or cut into matchsticks).  Add salt and let rest for 5 minutes.  Squeeze out excess moisture.

Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Serve with  rice.

Note: it’s even better the day after!
