I can’t believe I forgot about seaweed salad. I don’t know what I was thinking! I haven’t made it in eight years or something, but I used to make it all the time. It’s so delicious and ridiculously simple.
1 bag of dried seaweed salad
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp water
1. Start with a bag of dried seaweed salad from Goldmine Foods or your local Japanese market. It comes in a little bag and looks different than regular seaweed: it’s colorful, with bits of red, dark green, and a white mossy color. The ingredients are wakame, green nori, kombu, agar agar, and akamodoki (red seaweed).
2. Put that in a bowl – maybe half a cup dried. I just ate two bags of it though, so go ahead and put a whole cup in your bowl if you have enough.
3. Then, squeeze the juice of one lemon on it and add a little olive oil and a tiny bit of water. Let it marinate for a little while, and eat up!
It’s delicious just like that or you can add avocado if you’re feeling wild and crazy. Either way, it’s the quickest, easiest, most delicious, yummy salad ever. I ate it as a snack, but it could be part of any meal.
