Assorted Seaweed Salad.

Top Review by Domestic Princess

This was fantastic. I had some wakame in the pantry and was figuring where to use up my enoki mushrooms, and came across this recipe. It was a very refreshing salad, especially during this hot weather here in Melbourne, AUS. I paired this with a simple miso soup, which was not only satisfying but healthy too. Thanks for a great recipe!
