Japanese Daikon Radish Salad

Taste and Create was started as a food event by Nicole from For the Love of Food.  The whole purpose of Taste and Create was, and has been, and continues to be to create a community of bloggers who test each others’ recipes and share links. The participants of the event are paired together and try a new recipe from one another’s blog.
This month I was paired with PJ from Seduce Your Tastebuds. PJ has some awesome vegetarian recipes!  I chose her Japanese Daikon Radish salad.  It was perfect for our BBQ.  I also need batteries for the camera so I couldn’t get the picture – just know that it was a perfect side!

Daikon radish – 1 large, peeled and finely shredded
Carrot-1 small, finely shredded
2 tablespoons White vinegar
