Purple Daikon Coconut Yogurt Toast with Peanut Salsa

Thick coconut yogurt, peppery purple daikon radish, and a lime and chile peanut salsa inspired by salsa macha come together for this savory yogurt toast created by Filipino American chef Woldy Reyes. He advises using a thick coconut yogurt for this recipe; if yours is too thin, spoon it into a piece of cheesecloth and let it drain over a bowl for a couple of hours to thicken.
