Wakame Seaweed Salad

I’m a fan of ordering seaweed salads whenever we go to Japanese restaurants and I realized how easy it is to make it at home.

You can buy the dried seaweed at a specialty Japanese store or even online at Amazon.

Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Japanese
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 ounce or ½ cup of dried wakame seaweed
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon mirin
  • 1 Tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 Tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 Persian cucumbers
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Sea Salt to taste
Instructions

  1. Soak the dried seaweed in a bowl for 15 minutes. While the seaweed is soaking, mix the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, mirin, miso paste, ginger, and sesame oil in a small bowl using a whisk. This is your dressing.
  2. Thinly slice the cucumbers (I like using a mandolin) and finely chop the scallions. When the seaweed is ready, drain the water and squeeze out any leftover water.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss the drained seaweed, cucumbers, scallions, and dressing. Sprinkle the sesame seeds and salt (if using) on top. Serve chilled.
