Today I’m sharing an easy Korean side dish recipe – daikon radish salad.

Its Korean name is Musaengchae (무생채). Mu means radish (daikon radish / white radish) and saengchae means salad / raw vegetables.

I actually shared this recipe back in 2006 and I decided to update it recently. Because many people have asked me the exact weight of the radish I used in the recipe. (Back then I didn’t specify it. I just said 1/2 daikon radish! Lol.)

But this information is very important because depending on the size of radish you use, you might need to make more or less sauce!

Anyway, what I love about this daikon radish salad is that it takes less than 10 mins to make. So it makes a quick side dish.

I often serve it with bossam (Korean pork wrap) and sometimes in my Bibimbap too. These are simply the best combination!

Alternatively, you could serve it with plain steamed rice with other Korean side dishes. It can’t go wrong!

Finally, this radish salad is effectively a shredded radish kimchi, would you believe? So if you run out of kimchi, this can be a quick fix!

Just note that, the kimchi like umami rich deeper flavor will develop gradually as time goes by. But, it tastes best within 5 to 7 days of being made.

Ready to make it? Hope you like it!

  1. Can this be made with out the Korean hot pepper I’ve eaten this at a restaurant in Daleville Al and it was just a white radish kimchee. The only problem is I moved away from the area and the city I live in doesn’t have a Korean restaurant here the closest one is 45 min away and to think its also a military town go figure.
