Farm Fresh Recipes — salad

I like a warming casserole on a cold winter's day just as much as the next guy, but sometimes you just want a super fresh salad, no matter the season! The addition of creamy, grilled halloumi makes this salad a meal in itself. Add a slice of warm bread on the side, and you're good to go!
First off daikon is a crunchy, winter radish that becomes sweeter if you peel it - which is Jolianne's advice to you, if you plan to eat it raw.

All you have to do is slice the daikon radish, dip it in dressing or peanut butter or add shredded raw daikon to your salad.
