Wakame Seaweed Salad Recipe


After enjoying a ready-made seaweed salad at the local health food store a few years ago, I looked at the ingredients list and decided it was simple and delicious enough to make at home.

Seaweed is known for its nutrient dense-low calorie trace minerals such as thyroid supporting Iodine and inflammation reducing Omega-3 fatty acid as well as Vitamins A, K, C and Folate.

Ingredients:

1 bag wakame seaweed

fresh ginger root

sesame seeds

toasted sesame oil

fresh scallions/green onion

Tools/Equipment:

mixing bowl

mixing spoon

cheese grater or microplane

herb scissors or knife

fine mesh strainer

Instructions:

Soak the desired amount of wakame in filtered water, you may need to add more water as seaweed re-hydrates. It doubles in size when hydrated. I usually make 1/2 of a 1.76 oz bag at a time, the whole bag if i'm entertaining. Hydrating takes about 10-15 minutes but can be left out to hydrate longer.

Once seaweed is fully hydrated pour into a the strainer, gently pressing out excess water and transfer to a bowl.

Drizzle with oil (just a drizzle at first and you can always add more later to taste).

Grate the ginger and cut up scallions into 1/4 inch pieces and add both to seaweed.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and mix together.

Give the salad a good taste and add more of each ingredient until it tastes just right to you.

Hope you enjoy this super easy nutrient rich seaweed salad!
