A very nice salad, the daikon radish is sweetish and goes well with the light orangey sauce. This would be a great salad for a hot summer afternoon, but even on a rainy winter day it tasted good.

The looks like a totally comprehensible salad inspite of
its name. Thanks for an interesting recipe.

I've never seen a salad tower before. But I like it.

Way to go, CR. Nice-looking salad. I keep saying I've got to give daikon another chance. When the salad queen gets back, we'll try this. Thanks!
