      David Chang's Salt & Sugar Pickles4 servings

      David makes these pickles to be enjoyed right after seasoning, while they are
      still vibrant and crunchy.

      3 very large radishes
      2 thin daikon radishes
      2 thin-skinned cucumbers with few seeds
      2 pounds seedless watermelon
      1 teaspoon fine sea salt
      1 teaspoon sugar

      Prepare the vegetables and fruit and arrange in separate bowls; there should be about 1 1/2 cups of each kind. Halve the radishes and slice into thin wedges. Cut the daikon radishes crosswise into slices about 1/8 inch thick. Cut the cucumbers crosswise into slices about 1/4; inch thick. Remove the rind of the watermelon and cut the flesh into slices 1/3 inch thick and then into 2-inch wedges.

      In a small bowl, combine the salt and sugar, and sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture over each vegetable and the watermelon and toss. Let the pickles stand for 5 to 10 minutes, arrange separately on a platter, and serve immediately.
