Grape Yam Daikon Sauce

I challenged myself to create a vegan, dairy free, gluten free, nut free sauce that I could use on my ‘7 Day Healthy Cleanse‘.  I was on day 4 and really needed some new flavors.  This light, sweet, garlicky flavor is delicious!  I use this as a spread for sandwiches, a sauce for noodles or a dressing for salads.  In case you don’t know what a daikon is (like I didn’t a few months ago!), here’s a pic of a beautiful white roasted daikon.  

Why Grape, Yam & Daikon Radish?

Grapes have heart friendly plant compounds that may protect against certain cancers. Yams are loaded with fiber, iron, calcium, selenium, beta carotene, B and C vitamins.  Daikon radishes are packed with digestive enzymes, immune raising phytonutrients and lots of Vitamin C, potassium and phosphorus.    I hope you love this as much as I do.
