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.

1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced into rounds
2-3 pinches of sea salt
1 cup napa cabbage, shredded
1 stalk of celery, sliced thinly

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