Farmer's Market Daikon Noodles

Daikon Noodles with Grape Tomatoes and Cilantro

I have been wanting to try Daikon noodles for some time now so when I saw the beautiful organic ones at the Farmer's Market I knew now was the time to get busy with the spiralizer. They are super easy to spiralize and they make beautiful noodles. I love the mild taste, almost like a very mild radish but so much more refreshing. I dressed the noodles with some First Cold Pressed Olive Oil, sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and then topped them with some grape tomatoes and cilantro. This made a very satisfying dinner for me, I just loved it! I have one more Daikon left, I am thankful for that. I need to think of another way to prepare this lovely vegetable. Any ideas??

+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for a burst of energy this morning that got me up out of bed and right into a workout routine! Wow, what a surprise. I have been having trouble just remembering to exercise, so when I woke up ready to get to it, I was very happy and grateful. As I was doing my push ups I was startled by an extra 28 pounds when the two year old jumped on my back! I hit the floor like a pancake. Needless to say I took him off my back and locked the door so I could finish. He thought it was all very funny.
