This mineral-rich salad presents itself beautifully. It has long been a favourite at Toronto's Big Carrot deli.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse the dried sea vegetables. Rinse several times if you prefer less of an 'ocean' taste.
  2. Place them in a small pot of cold water and bring to a boil.
  3. Simmer for 10 minutes, then remove pot from heat and let stand, covered for 30 minutes or longer until the arame and hijiki re-hydrate and become tender.
  4. Drain sea vegetables well (retain cooking water as a soup stock).
  5. Rinse again, if desired, for a milder flavour.
  6. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss well.
