Cabbage Daikon and Carrot Salad

Here is a wonderful crisp and crunchy recipe that is a nice change from a normal everyday lettuce salad. This goes well with everything or is also great on it's own. For those of you who don't have access to Daikon radish you can substitute with another type of radish which will most probably have to be sliced by hand rather than shredded, but it will still be lovely.
