gobo salad

I miss seasonal Japanese vegetables.
 Especially after I gave birth to my son, I haven't have opportunity to get out the house and go for shopping. Whatever I need to buy unless its small or light items, all of my shopping are on the online. Today, online shopping are so convenient and even more items or stock on the website than actual store... Some people hate online shopping, I don't mid at all but I prefer go for shopping than online shopping...

My friend brought me a burdock when she visited me and Hugo in last weekend. 
Burdock is really popular vegetable in Japan but I have to go to Asian/ Japanese grocery store to buy it in here. It is looks like a branch. But burdock is a root vegetable and high in nutrition. 



So this is the gobo salad recipe. 

Gobo: peel the skin and thinly slice like a photo below and soak in the water until cook
3 slices of cooked ham: cut into same size as gobo

- dressing -
3 tbsp mayonnaise (I used Kewpie mayonnaise)
white sesame seeds
1 tbsp vinegar (I used rice viegar)
1 tbsp suger
1 tsp soysauce
1 tsp miso

Cook gobo in boiling water for 3-5 minutes, depends on how thin you manage to cut. 
Then drain the water.



キューピーマヨネーズ 大さじ3
酢 大さじ1
砂糖 大さじ1
醤油 小さじ1
味噌 小さじ1

 Mix with ham, and well dress with dressing. Sesame seeds could be sprinkled on top or you can grate them and mix with sauce. 
Broccoli, carrot, cauliflower are also great alternative vegetable.    

Bon appetit!
