  • Daikon 400g
  • 1 pack Sprouts 50g
  • Shredded Nori for topping

Sesami Dressing


  • Cut ingredients: Peel daikon and shred it, and remove the root of sprouts. Mix daikon and sprouts in a large bowl, 
  • Sesame dressing: Put all the ingredients in a small bottle, close it and mix by shaking.
  • Serve: Serve daikon and sprout on a plate, top with shredded nori, and pour the sesame dressing over.



  • Equipment: The size of the bottle for dressing is 80 ml.
  • Storage: Store in a food container and keep it in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. 
  • Substitute (Salad): You can also use green vegetables such as lettuce, baby leaf, mizuna, and shiso instead of sprouts.
  • Substitute (Dressing): You can substitute ground sesame seeds with tahini. If you don't like mayonnaise, you can use yogurt instead. You can also use honey instead of sugar.
  • Please pour the dressing right before eating.
  • It's handy to use a bottle when making the dressing. Close the lid and keep the bottle in the fridge.
  • Daikon skin is hard, so it is better to peel it when making a salad. Please don't throw them away; you can make a tasty stir-fry dish with daikon skin.
