Daikon Radish with Lemon Zest

(Last Updated on October 29, 2023 by Amiee)

If you love porridge or noodles just like me, you must have salads or pickles. This daikon radish with lemon zest is very crisp and has a lemony aroma which often appears on my dining table.

We called  it pickle because of marinating by salt. But the taste shoud be better than salad. It will bring delightful texture to the greasy dishes.
