Pickled Daikon Radish with grated Turmeric and Ginger

Pickled Daikon Radish with grated Turmeric and Ginger

Tasty topping for tacos, burgers and bowls!

This quick pickled daikon is a spin off a Korean style recipe but I added fresh grated ginger and turmeric for both flavour and added health benefits as both have strong anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. Daikon radishes also boast a host of anti-oxidants and are rich in Vitamin C. These quick pickles are a delightful addition to tacos, bowls and burgers or thrown into a salad for some crunch and tang. Not gonna lie, they smell awful when you open the jar but they taste delicious!
