The combination of sea vegetables and salad greens tossed in an oriental inspired dressing creates a wonderful light and refreshing side dish. Bags of dried mixed sea vegetables are widely available and just require a little soaking before use. Sea vegetables are rich in vitamins and minerals including iodine for healthy thyroid function.
Preparation time: 25 minutes
1 cup mixed sea vegetables, soaked for 15 minutes, drained
Large handful of watercress or mixed salad greens, coarsely chopped
4 radishes, sliced
½ cucumber, cut into long strips lengthways
1 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
Combine all the vegetables in a large bowl.
Mix together the dressing ingredients. Drizzle a little over the salad and toss well.
