While surfing around the other day looking at various sammiches, a Vietnamese street favorite caught my eye. It is a banh mi, based on a small loaf that is split from the top and stuffed with various meats and veggies. I’ll get to the sammich recipes some other day, today I want to talk about what seems to be a necessary garnish: Pickled daikon and carrot. Daikon is a long white radish-looks like a huge albino carrot. I wish I had thought to take a before picture of the one I chopped up just now. There are plenty of pickle recipes online, I found the one I used here. It has plenty of pictures so I don’t feel too bad. There are plenty of links on that page to find sammich recipes, I’ll look at some of those when I get around to making them. The veggies need 3-5 days to get right.
