In Japan, salt pickles are a staple. David Chang serves his right after seasoning, while they're still vibrant and crunchy.

  1. 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  2. 1 teaspoon sugar
  3. 3 very large radishes, halved and sliced into thin wedges (1 1/2 cups)
  4. 2 thin daikon radishes, sliced crosswise 1/8 inch thick (1 1/2 cups)
  5. 2 Kirby cucumbers, sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick (1 1/2 cups)
  6. 2 pounds seedless watermelon—rind removed, flesh sliced 1/3 inch thick and cut into 2-inch wedges
  1. In a small bowl, combine the salt and sugar. Arrange the radishes, daikon, cucumbers and watermelon in separate bowls; sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of the salt mixture over each and toss. Let the pickles stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
