Buckwheat-daikon salad

Buckwheat groats, sometimes called kasha, are hearty and filling pseudo-grain with a unique, earthy taste. In Japan, buckwheat is ground and made into soba noodles that are often served cold with daikon radishes and wasabi – this salad is inspired by that simple and classic combination.
