Mooli and Carrot Salad with Sesame Seeds

Kitchen Play List:     Adele ~ 21 Album

Mooli ~ A giant white Asian radish! That was my mystery ingredient this week, provided by my friend D. And I had a lot of recipes waiting to use it in...but no real kitchen time as we were busy with birthday celebrations! Darn! lol. It was a real shame as I haven't been able to find the elusive radish around here. But D happened to be walking down the street and saw some outside the grocers and thought of So as I was making a buffet for my celebrations that consisted of 12 salads I thought "...well why not try the Mooli Salad recipe out?.." And that is what I did....

The results were a very refreshing salad. Simple and clean flavours...I hope I can find a constant supply of these radish because it was a pleasure to use.
