  • 1 1/2 pounds daikon, peeled
  • 1 pound carrots
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated and peeled
  • 3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons white sesame seeds
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • Kosher salt


Shave the daikon into ribbons with a vegetable peeler. Toss with 1/4 teaspoon salt in a colander; let drain in the sink, tossing occasionally, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, shave the carrots into ribbons with the peeler. Make the dressing: Whisk the ginger, vinegar, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Slowly whisk into the vegetable oil and sesame oil until blended. Toast the sesame seeds in a skillet over medium heat, tossing occasionally, until the white seeds are golden, about 5 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of seeds to the dressing. Toss the daikon and carrots with the dressing and season with salt. Top with the remaining sesame seeds.
