Seaweed Salad

IMG_0079

My mom makes this really well, but every time I ask her to show me how to make it, it just appears on the table already prepared.  Then she tells me she will show me next time.  So I decided to get a little adventurous and see if I could recreate this salad with the help of Google.  I love the sweetness from the honey combined with the tartness of the vinegar.  Seaweed is full of antioxidants and Huffington Post calls it a Superfood.

Ingredients
couple handfuls of dry seaweed, cut
2 carrots, shredded
1 cucumber, diced
1 inch ginger, finely grated
3 T rice or apple cider vinegar
1 T sesame oil
2 t honey
salt to taste
sesame seeds, garnish
scallions, garnish

Directions

1.  Soak dry seaweed in a bowl with water, for about 10-15 minutes.

2.  Combine and whisk together the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl.

3.  Drain the seaweed and squeeze out excess water with your hands.

4.  Toss the seaweed with the dressing.  Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions.
