Food52 Review: Easy and simple, this tastes very much like a seaweed salad at a sushi joint. I found the three julienned radishes to look spare and lonely, so I julienned two more for the salad. totalnoms is right, this is a really fresh dish. My first thought was ‘wouldn't this be yummy with shredded seaweed in it?!’ My husband thought a bit of heat might be a nice addition. Maybe another time. In its original format, this recipe makes a lovely, fresh, flavorful dish! - em-i-lis —em-i-lis
