Anor va turplik salat (Pomegranate salad with daikon)
This salad is beautiful and very useful, as it will cleans up the blood cells and helps digestion. Usually in Uzbekistan this salad is made from a special type of radish called "turp" - it is fresh, juicy and green in color. That looks very beautiful too. But today I make it from daikon, which was also very tasty and interesting. You can also use turnip for this salad which is also a very healthy substitution. Just put the turnip in cold water to get rid of that bitter taste. This salad is very good with meat.
1 big daikon, peeled
1 medium sized pomegranate
Grate the daikon or cut it in thin long strips. Clean up pomegranate and add in these beautiful red seeds to the grated daikon, mix together well, add some salt if you want. Serve and enjoy this crunchy and healthy salad!
