Did you peel the yellow squash?

No. There's a parsnip in there that I did peel.

Thank you. I was thinking of doing that salad also. I may use yellow squash and zucchini because no one here likes parsnip or radish.
Wasn't sure if we need to peel the squashes.

No, don't peel them. Not peeling leaves a contrast between the "petals" and the centers, so they look more like flowers. I couldn't find daikon radish, so in addition to the carrot, I used an English cucumber, a parsnip, and a yellow squash.

Did you use a knife or some kind of tool to cut the wedge strips?

Yes. It's called a channel knife.

Thanks for the inspiration, K'girl

Here's her recipe: https://mykitcheninthemiddleofthedes...easier-namasu/

I also made Chef John's mini tarts with puff pastry and sweetened cream cheese with lemon juice and Penzeys Pie Spice. Attachment 34276Attachment 34277

I just now saw this post GG, MAHALO (thanks)!

I got a 'notice' from my blog that on that day my numbers
had real jumped and I wasn't really sure why... now I do

There's actual cutters to make the veg look like flowers, etc.
but I have yet to find them. The come from Japan and we
don't have those types of markets here in COWBOYVILLE
so the next time we go back to Hawaii, I'll surely look again
for those!

Namasu is one of my favorite salads and it can be made with
al sorts of veggies, as you did.
It goes so well with fatty meats, like BBQ Pork

OKAY!
Now I've got to make a batch myself

I use my Chef's Knife, probably not the best idea, but now I
know where to get the cutters... I'll look for them back home,
I'm sure I can find them in Hawaii.
