Daikon and carrot salad with peanut sauce

The daikon and carrot salad with peanut sauce and tofu is a light winter meal.


Ingredients for the daikon and carrot salad with peanut sauce

1 medium-size daikon

4 carrots

2 cup of mixed sprouts

200 g of tofu


2 spoonful of sesame seeds

For the sauce:

1/2 a cup of peanut butter (if you’re allergic, choose a different type of seed butter)

4 spoonful of lemon juice

1 teaspoonful of honey

2 spoonful of tamari


2 teaspoonful of fresh grated ginger


Clean the daikon and the carrots and peel them. Cut them into julienne, or grate them. Wash the soy sprouts. Combine in a bowl the daikon, carrots and sprouts. Dice the tofu and add it to the salad. Add parsley and sesame seeds.

To prepare the sauce combine all the ingredients. Serve the salad with the peanut sauce.

Daikon helps burn fat in different parts of your body if you eat it fresh as well as if you eat it dried.
