Seaweed Salad

Seaweed Salad created by Andi Longmeadow Farm

Seaweed has amazing properties! Sea vegetables are virtually fat-free, low calorie and are one of the richest sources of minerals in the vegetable kingdom. According to Seibin and Teruko Arasaki, authors of Vegetables from the Sea, “All of the minerals required by human beings, including calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, iodine, iron, and zinc are present in sufficient amounts. In addition, there are many trace elements in seaweeds.” They also contain vitamins as vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), B1, B2, B6, niacin, vitamin C, pantothenic acid, and folic acid. Analysis has shown trace amounts of vitamin B12, which rarely occurs in land vegetables. Sea vegetables have been shown to cleanse the body of toxic pollutants. Seaweed feeds the shafts and the ducts of the scalp to help improve the health of the hair. It has been said that the thick, black, lustrous hair of the Japanese is partly due to their regular diet of brown sea vegetables such as arame. Research has shown that minerals are important to healthy hair growth, and arame has a high mineral content. Other health benefits, according to Carlson Wade’s book Health Secrets from the Orient, include regulating the hormones, enriching the bloodstream, assisting in metabolism, promoting a youthful skin color, and helping to warm the body to promote mental youthfulness. So enjoy this nutritionally-packed food on the planet.

    I have made seaweed salad before and it was great. I thought I would try this recipe because I love all the ingredients including Cilantro (love it). This is a great recipe, but I had to start over with the wet ingredients because I used old sesame oil and when I sampled it, it tasted bad. I bought new oil and fresh sesame seeds and it turned out great!

    The cover photo is NOT wakame seaweed and so this salad recipe was a huge disappointment - chewy and overpowering

    What should I use instead of sugar? I'd like to use agave, honey, maple syrup, stevia...

    Wow! I used 5 separate varieties of seaweeds and sea lettuce has that I had in the cupboard and added an extra 2 minutes of soaking and removed the cilantro because it tastes like soap to me. This is a recipe that I will be coming back to frequently!
