Winter Radish and Apple Slaw

This recipe is best with very crisp tart apples to set off the other flavors of the radish and the dressing.  This recipe is also quite versitale and I encourage you to experiment with other vegetables or different dressings using whatever you have on hand!

1-2 granny smith apples, peeled & julienned
1-3 Watermelon radishes, peeled & grated
1-2 carrots, peeled & grated (optional)
1-2 tablespoons minced onion (or garlic or shallot)

 Mix all above together and pour over the following dressing recipe.  Toss to combine.  Taste.  Adjust seasonings as desired. Cover and refrigerate. Serve cold.

For the dressing, whisk together:

1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted (optional)
3 tablespoons vinegar (rice or whatever you have)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
½ to 1 tablespoon sugar, honey, or maple syrup
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon minced ginger root (or ½ teaspoon powder)
Salt and pepper to taste
