Daikon Salad with Pollock Roe and Wasabi mayonnaise
God I love this salad.
I love its shape; jagged white lines of gravity-defying, crisp Japanese radish.
I love its colour; electric orange mentaiko (spicy pollock roe) juxtaposed with dark emerald scribbles of shredded nori (toasted seaweed). I love its texture and taste; the shock of cold, crunchy radish followed by the piquant rush of wasabi mayonnaise.
The perfect antidote to this oppressive summer heat.
