Winter Fruit & Vegetable Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

Winter Fruit & Vegetable Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

Giant white carrots are in season? No, it’s daikon and it’s available now! Since I’m always trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables in my recipes, I sought out daikon, a mildly flavored radish that looks like a giant white carrot. It’s juicy and crisp, just perfect for a fall or winter fruit salad like this. It also contains lots of vitamins and cancer protecting potential along with digestive enzymes that helps break down food for better digestion…you’re welcome!
