Korean Chilled Radish Salad (Mu Saengch'ae)
1 pound of Korean Radish, peeled and cut into long matchsticks. Daikon Radish may be used, but the sweet and peppery Korean Radish is preferred.
1 Korean or Asian Pear, cored, peeled and cut into matchsticks, or a tbsp of freshly squeezed Lemon juice.
1/2 cup shucked fresh Oysters (optional)
1 tbsp hot Red Pepper powder (gochu Garu)
1/2 tbsp salted shrimp (Saeu Chot), or salted anchovy (Myolch'i Chot... tinned Anchovies may be substituted)
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp rice vinegar or distilled white vinegar
1 tbsp rice wine or vermouth
1 tbsp sugar
1 clove garlic, crushed and finely chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
1 tbsp ginger, peeled and finely minced
2 tbsp dark sesame oil
3 scallions (white and pale green parts only), finely chopped
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
a pinch each of salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mix ingredients well, reserving some of the sesame seeds and chopped scallion for a garnish. Refrigerate 2-3 hours until well chilled. Transfer to serving dish and garnish.
This dish is like a sweet and peppery slaw, and goes particularly well with Bulgogi... thin-sliced, marinated grilled beef

I swapped out 2 of the 4 spectralux T5 tubes in my light fixture and replaced them with a couple of PowerVEG FS+UV tubes, and I'm LOVING the results!
My new favorite sandwich... Nutella and Peach Habanero jam.
Harvest is really starting to kick in... time to start loading the Solar Dehydrator!

Finally turned the corner into summer at the end of June. I hope this won't become a regular thing here...
Man, what a crazy spring! I usually have my chiles transplanted outside by mid-April, but not this year!
