• ½ head of red leaf lettuce

  • A small bunch of arugula

  • A small bunch of red radishes (with leaves if possible)

  • 1 cucumber

  • Sea salt

  • 1 Tbsp Umeboshi vinegar
Pressed Salad


Break up the leafy vegetables with your hands.

Cut the radishes into thin rounds.

Cut the cucumber in half, remove the seeds with a small spoon, slice very thin.

Place everything into a bowl, add a few pinches of salt for taste, and mix well.

Cover bowl with a smaller flat dish, and place a weighted object (heavy jar, rock, etc.) on top of the plate to press the salad mixture. Let it stand for at least one to two hours.

When ready to serve, add one tablespoon of umeboshi vinegar diluted in a little water.

Mix well and serve.

“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
