Things to do with that dick-looking vegetable

... besides, you know, the obvious.

But I mean come on:

Okay, maybe not a dick, but a '70s dildo at least for sure. At any rate you get the idea.

Don't know what it is? Well then you're missing out. It's called a daikon, or lo bok. It's also called both a Japanese and Chinese radish. It's like an English radish but less peppery, more mild. It's flavour is a little like a turnip, with a kick. It's lovely on it's own with a little salt, but it's also great in this salad or salsa, determined by the size you make the pieces:

Beet and Daikon Salad
1 large beet
1 large piece of daikon (they can get enormous so the general rule for this salad is to make the ratio of beet to daikon roughly the same)
1 bunch cilantro (about 3 tablespoons)
lemon juice to taste
olive oil to taste
sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Peel the beet and the daikon and slice into matchstick pieces (for the salad version) or small cubes (for the salsa version). Place in a mixing bowl. Chop the cilantro fine and add to the bowl. Add fresh lemon juice and olive oil to taste (I'm a big believer in the free hand pour when it comes to those two ingredients), the salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and leave to stand for about half an hour so it can marinate, then serve

Goes great with toast, on a potato, or alongside curry. It's fresh taste makes it great for summer (I've taken it on picnics and it's been fabulous). Plus it keeps for days.

(whoever has Rebecca Black's terrible "friday" fucked up song stuck in their head, raise your hand *raises hand*. By and large I know nothing about pop culture, I listen to scratchy jazz records on a rebuilt Philco, and I don't know the names of most celebrities. But this came across my desk and I couldn't help but be entranced by it's horribleness. My favorite part is when she feels the need to explain the days of the week (tomorrow is Saturday/then comes Sunday). I feel like shouting "THOSE are the days of the week? And those two together comprise a weekend? GIT OWWWWWTTTTAA HERE!"). Some people's kids.
