September 07, 2012: Matchstick Salad

September 7, 2012

Here’s are super-simple, super-light, super-healthy salad for the last hot days of Summer.

Skin and matchstick three medium carrots and a small jicama (or daikon, Japanese white radish). Wash and matchstick two stalks of celery and a small zucchini. Wash and matchstick a small eggplant; rinse, salt and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse under cold water. Dry eggplant on paper towels. Skin, de-seed and matchstick a small cucumber. Thinly slice a mild red pepper. This makes about 4 C. veggies. Add 1/2 C. rice vinegar and one Tblsp. mirin to veggies. Chill. Top with toasted sesame seeds and crumbled toasted nori.
