Spice-sauce salad

Originally I had planned to make carrot cake with the fresh carrots I purchased from the farmer's market yesterday, but ran out of baking soda so instead I experimented a little with various salad sauces, and came up with my own asian-inspired sweet-and-spicey spice salad dressing. The salad primarily consists of fresh radishes sliced and salted, carrot shavings, and fresh shredded cilantro. Add chopped almonds or sunflower seeds if you feel it needs some more crunch.

I know, I know- another radish post. What can I say; they're my favorite salad vegetable.

Salad recipe:
*1/2 cup to 1 cup shredded cilantro
*1 cup carrot shavings
*About 7-9 radishes
*1/2 teaspoon salt

Salad preperation:
1.) Quarter and slice radishes thinly, then salt with 1/2 teaspoon salt for 20-30 minutes
2.) Mix all vegetables up in a bowl with the dressing

Sweet-and-spicey dressing:
*1/2 cup water
*1 teaspoon dried pepper powder
*1/2 teaspoon sugar
*1/4 teaspoon salt

Sweet-and-spicey dressing preperation:
1.) Heat up water in a small saucepan
2.) Stir in dried pepper powder, sugar, and salt
3.) Remove from heat and let cool

  1. Sooo assisting me on my weight-loss efforts! The sauce needs a bit of thickening; maybe mix in some brown sugar syrup or french dressing
