The simple radish dish doubles as a banchan or a fresh salad.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized Korean radish (moo 무), approximately 2 lb
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • l/2 tbsp hot pepper powder (gochugaru 고추가루)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • l/2 tsp salt
  • ½ tbsp pine nuts

Recipe Steps:

  • Wash and peel the white radish. Thinly slice, matchstick style -- you can use a shredder or mandolin.

  • Add hot pepper powder (gochugaru 고추가루) to the radish mixture, mixing well.
  • Cook the minced garlic in the miicrowave for about 20 seconds, then cool it and add to the radish mixture.
