Hawaiian Pickled Beet Salad
Quick-pickled beets are topped here with a namasu (a lightly pickled vegetable salad) made with carrot, cucumber and daikon radish. Recipes like this reflect the influence of Japanese immigrants who came to Hawaii to work on the sugar plantations in the 1800s. Recipe adapted from Chef Greg Harrison, Pacific'O Restaurant.
To make ahead: Refrigerate pickled beets and kale puree (Steps 2-4) for up to 2 days.
