Beauty Heart Radish (心裡美蘿蔔), some call it Watermelon Radish.
It's beautiful no matter how you slice it.
To use raw in salad -- grate, shred, or thinly slice, and toss with your favorite salad dressing.
Or you can pickle the radish for snacks or serve with grilled meats.
Sprinkle radish with some salt and set aside for 5-8 minutes, then rinse off salt and drain,
at the mean time make pickling sauce with -- 1 part sugar + 0.75 part rice vinegar + pinch of salt.
You may add other spices to the sauce as you wish, I only use fresh peppers for this pickle.
Pack jar with radish and any herb/spice then pour the pickling sauce into the jar.
I put some fresh yellow peppers at the bottom,
you can see a bit of yellow at the lower right corner.
