Wakame Apple Salad

seasweed, apple salad

A lovely refreshing salad that complements most Asian dishes especially sushi. This recipe makes a side for one person, to serve more people multiply the ingredient amounts by the number of guests you are cooking for. This Wakame is grown in NZ waters, and is a fabulous addition to savory dishes and its packed full of essential minerals and nutrients.


2 tbsp Wakame, soaked in 3 tbsp hot water for 10 min. – I used healthposts, BioBalance range.

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

¼ of a green apple

½ tsp toasted sesame oil

1 tsp rice wine vinegar

½ tsp honey.

Finely slice the apple into thin sticks. In small bowl mix together the honey, sesame oil, and rice wine vinegar. Drain the wakame and press out the excess water in a sieve or cheese cloth. Add to bowl along with apple and sesame seeds, mix well to combine dressing and flavours.
