Daikon Leaves 大根の葉っぱ

Hello, everyone!  It has been cloudy today.  I have written about the benefits we can get from daikon leaves for skin in this article.  Daikon leaves contain more Vitamin C than daikon, they contain iron more than double compared to spinach, and they are also rich in Vitamin A!  I have been looking for new ways to use daikon leaves.  I was thinking a way which I don't have to cook the leaves and at the same time, I don't have to taste the bitterness of raw daikon leaves.  Then, I got a good idea!  I tried it, and it was a great success!  I have been already repeating the recipe! 
I first make julienne strips daikon, daikon leaves, and carrots.  Then, I sprinkled salt on them and leave them for a while.
After a while, I squeezed the vegetables in order to get rid of the excess water.  Then, I dress the vegetable with soy sauce, organic sugar, and chopped walnuts. 
By putting some sugar, I don't have to feel the bitter taste of the raw daikon leaves and the taste is great!  I think this could be one of the best ways to eat daikon leaves!  I love this!
