Daikon Radish Boxes with Crab Salad

Source: Martha Stewart Living


  • 3 to 4 large daikon radishes (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/2 pound lump crabmeat (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and seeded, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon chervil leaves, plus more for garnish


  1. Cut the daikon radishes into 1 1/4-inch cubes (make sure the bottom is cut evenly so the cube will sit flat). Use a 1-inch melon baller to scoop out a bowl in the center of each cube.

  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil, and blanch the daikon boxes for 3 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

  3. Pick over the crabmeat, and discard any shells or cartilage. Place the crabmeat in a medium bowl, and add the diced cucumber, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and 1 teaspoon chervil leaves. Stir the mixture until combined.

  4. Place 1 heaping teaspoon crab salad into each daikon box, and garnish with remaining chervil leaves. Serve.
