Daikon roll
Peel the daikon. Using a vegetable or potato peeler, cut slices lengthwise. Arrange 2 of these long slices per person on a work surface alongside each other like a bar. The bars have to overlap each other by about 3 centimeters.
Cut the ends of the enoki off straight. Put the enoki at the beginning point of the daikon bars.
Put a few sprigs of daikon cress next to the enoki.
Peel the avocado, remove the stone and cut the flesh into thin slices.
Put 2 slices of avocado half on top of the daikon cress.
Put the preserved daikon and the preserved ginger on the avocado.
Sprinkle a few leaves of lamb’s lettuce over this.
Blanch 4 chives very briefly in boiling water.
Roll the daikon slices very tightly round the filling. Tie up each small roll with a chive. With a sharp knife trim the bottom end of the daikon roll.
Mix all ingredients for the dressing in a food processor.
To finish
Pour a little dressing on each plate and put the daikon roll in the middle.
