1 cup mild radish (such as daikon or watermelon radish), yacon root, jicama, and/or crisp apple, sliced into matchsticks (peel jicama/yacon root)

3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey, agave, or sugar
Black pepper to taste

PREPARATION

  • In a large bowl, toss the cabbage, carrots, radish (etc.), orange, onion, almonds, and sesame seeds.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients until emulsified.
  • Add desired amount of dressing to the vegetables, toss well, and adjust seasonings as desired.

Cook’s note: “Supreming” citrus means to cut away the peel and pith, and slice the juicy segments from in between the membrane.
