Sashimi and Greens

  • 8 ounces sushi-grade tuna
  • 1-2 cups thinly shaved daikon radish
  • 1 package Kaiware (daikon cress sprouts) or pea shoots or micro-greens

Vidalia Soy Dressing

  • 1 cup minced Vidalia (or Maui) onion
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon wasabi powder or mustard powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 teaspoons grapeseed oil
  • 5 teaspoons sesame oil


1. Using a very sharp non-serrated carving or sushi knife, slice tuna against the grain into very thin slices – about 1/8-1/4”thick.

2. Mix dressing ingredients except for oils. Set aside to marinate for about 15 minutes.

3. Whisk in oils until well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Spoon a layer of dressing onto each salad plate. Arrange slices over dressing in a star pattern. Place shaved daikon in between tuna slices and in the center of the tuna. 

Top with kaiware (radish sprouts). Serve immediately.
