Gobo (burdock, in English) is a root vegetable with a sweet, mild flavour that can be substituted for or used alongside carrots and turnips. This salad involves combining lightly boiled burdock and carrot slices with a savoury sauce of soy sauce, mayonnaise, and sesame oil. Enjoy this flavoursome side dish with grilled beef or chicken.
