I got bored and wanted to make an appetizer for our meal recently so I made this yummy hors d'oeurve dish.  It was delicious and mellowed out the spiciness of the radish!

1/2 pound daikon radish, trimmed and thinly sliced
soy sauce

Arrange the sliced daikon radish on a plate or small serving dish all in one layer.  Pour over some soy sauce and vinegar at a ratio of 4:1 soy sauce to vinegar.  Make sure all of the radish slices are touching the marinade.  Let sit at room temperature for 1/2 to 1 hour.  Then drain and serve.
