  • 175g (6 oz) chopped mooli
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)

  1. In a mixing bowl, toss mooli with salt. Cover, and refrigerate until 1 to 2 tablespoons of water is released, about 30 minutes.
  2. Drain and rinse mooli, removing as much salt as possible. Pat dry with kitchen roll, and return to bowl. Stir in rice vinegar, pepper and, if desired, sesame oil. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
