Seaweed Salad

I made this seaweed salad after seeing a tiny container of tasty looking seaweed salad at the New Pioneer Co-op in Iowa City for $6. I’ll eat it for some lunches this week.

Seaweed Salad

Seedless Cucumber – thinly sliced
1/2 Red Onion – sliced
1/2 oz. Seaweed (I used the nori that should be used for sushi. Next time I’ll find an Asian market and find Wakame, which is what the recipe calls for.)
2 T. Red-wine vinegar
1 T. sugar
1 T. Mirin (I couldn’t find this at our local Jewel so I left it out and added a splash of soy sauce. Not sure if that is an accurate substitute though…)
2 T. toasted sesame seeds
1 t. Sesame oil
Salt and Pepper to tast

Slice one large seedless cucumber and mix with thin strips of seaweed. Toast sesame seeds for a few minutes in the oven and mix in. Mix liquids and stir in. Season with salt and pepper.

Notes: I will try to find Mirin next time, but it tastes good without. I will also try to find the correct seaweed. This seaweed was very difficult to cut even with a very sharp knife.

Serves: 4-5
