radish and cucumber with gomasio paste

How about a pretty salad as a starter course? If you are worried about not eating dairy, relax : this one will naturally bring calcium to your plate in the form of a condiment called gomasio, a mixture of sesame seeds and sea salt.  And if you can’t find it in your store, you can make it yourself.

Ingredients: (2 servings)

– a few radishes

– half a cucumber

– 2 TBSP gomasio

– 2 tsp sesame oil, or olive oil

How to:

1. Combine gomasio and oil. Place in the center of plate.

2. Wash cucumber and peel if desired. Wash radishes, cut off both ends.

3. Cut half of the cucumber into slices. For each slice, remove some of the center, creating a small hole into which you will place the radishes. Place slices around the gomasio.

4. Using a peeling knife, make 4 “flower petals” by peeling each radish about three quarters of its length.

5. Place a radish at the center of each cucumber slice.





    1. Thank you again. I actually could take tips from people who know what they are doing, so I definitely will take a look so I can keep impressing my Significant Other more often after thirty-six years of bondage marriage 😉

      1. That’s the way – keep learning something new and keep ‘impressing’ – the secret to enduring love maybe..
        And – you’ve beaten me on that one too by a couple of years – I’ve been married for 34 years on Saturday (lived together for 35 years on Saturday and been together for 41 years). It’s lovely to meet you Joelle and now I’m intrigued to know what else you beat me on by 2 years so I can be inspired to learn something new.. x
