Seaweed Salad with Fresh Herbs and Chile

Seaweed Salad with Fresh Herbs and Chile

Serves 4

The fresh, bright flavor of this salad is a great way to introduce newbies to the wonders of seaweed. We suggest using a popular Southeast Asian combination of mint, basil and cilantro in the salad, but even using two of these varieties will give the salad complex flavor.

  • 1 ounce wakame seaweed or other tender seaweed
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 Thai chile, seeded and minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons coconut aminos (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sliced mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup sliced basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Place seaweed into a large bowl. Add cold water to cover and let soak until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well, pressing down to extract as much water as possible and pat dry. 

Meanwhile, combine vinegar, shallot, chile, ginger and coconut aminos in a large bowl. Add seaweed, mint, basil and cilantro, and toss to coat.
