Pressed Salad

This morning I made a pressed salad to go with lunch. Pressing is a way of marinating vegetables under pressure in order to make them more digestible. Pressed salad is often used in small amounts, or as a condiment.

1 carrot, cut into thin rectangles

1/4 cabbage, shredded

4 red radishes, sliced into thin rounds

1 green onion, sliced thinly

1tsp sea salt

Mix all ingredients together and squeeze a little with your hands.  Put into a salad/pickle press or in a bowl with a plate on top. Put a weight on top of the plate to help press out water. After 45 min-hour rinse the vegetables and serve a small amount with your meal.

instead of sea salt, you can also use ume vinegar, soy sauce, rice vinegar or even dulse or nori flakes.
