Seaweed is rich in iodine, which is a necessary nutrient. It is used in Asian cuisine, in countries such as Japan.

If you ever go to a Japanese restaurant what you will find in the appetizer section of their menu is seaweed salad.

I love eating seaweed salad. It is delicious and something different. I usually eat it with chopsticks. It is more fun and makes picking up the seaweed strands easier.

Ingredients

  • salted seaweed stem
  • roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
rice vinegar salad dressing, sesame oil
rice vinegar salad dressing, sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Remove the salted seaweed stem from the packaging, place into a colander and wash off the salt under running water. Then place the seaweed into a bowl, fill with water and soak for about ten minutes. When ten minutes are up pour out the water from bowl, add fresh water into the bowl and soak again. When you feel that the seaweed is no longer very salty you are now ready to make the salad. Before making the salad though drain the seaweed in a colander and rinse. If you feel that the seaweed is still very salty keep soaking it in water. Be sure to change the water in the bowl with fresh water if you choose to do so.
  2. Remove the seaweed onto a cutting board. Separate the strands and cut each strand into about 2-inch length. Place into a salad bowl.
  3. Add two tablespoons of sesame oil and one tablespoon of rice vinegar salad dressing to the seaweed. Then sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds and stir.
  4. You are now ready to enjoy the seaweed salad.

      There are always training chopsticks you can use lol. Eating with chopsticks is much more fun than using a fork and sometimes it is easier lol like when you are eating seaweed or pasta.

      No matter how hard I've tried, I have not learned to use chopsticks. But your featured salad does look good and healthy. Thank you for sharing, Lena.
