  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


  1. Sprinkle the carrots and the turnips with a few pinches of sea salt, toss to coat and then set aside for 1 hour.
  2. In the meantime, combine the ginger, rice vinegar, sugar and soy sauce in a large, shallow bowl and whisk vigorously until the sugar has completely dissolved.
