Lemon Ginger Daikon Ribbons

If you love the farmer’s market like me, you’ve probably picked up a few “odd” items that you aren’t used to eating. Last week I grabbed some daikon squash. I’ve had it a couple times before and really liked it – it may become a regular in our house! It has a light flavor and kind of resembles a turnip or radish but without the bold flavor. I really like it served cold and raw but this recipe turned out great. I love the flavor combination of the lemon and ginger and the daikon really takes on these flavors well. Serve it alongside some grilled chicken or fish for a complete meal.
