This is a great way to start introducing seaweed to your diet. Wakame is high in iodine, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium and Vitamins A and B. Great for women and for thyroid function.
I love seaweed so add dulse, kelp, nori and wakame to many of my dishes. Start with this salad and I will introduce you to more ways to includes seaweed into your diet in the future.
This is basically just a green salad with the wakame added into it. Not all salad dressings taste good with the wakame so you might want to stick to an Asian style dressing. The one I use is so simple and basic and I explain it in the video but I will also write it below.
Dressing for Wakame Salad:
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil (or a mix of olive oil and sesame oil)
- 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice (also can use Apple Cider Vinegar or a mix of lemon juice and ACV)
- 1/2 – 3/4 Tbsp Braggs (or Tamari or Nama Shoyu)
- Depending on how large your salad is will determine how much dressing you need. Remember, start mixing and then taste as you go along so you can make the dressing to suite your taste.
If you have not tried either of these salads I highly suggest you do. I also encourage you to play around with the ingredients and dressings because everyone has a different taste and you must find what works for you.
