Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup dried hijiki seaweed
  • 1/2 cucumber sliced
  • 1 carrot sliced
  • 1/4 cup edamame beans shelled
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave syrup for a vegan version
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Instructions
 

  • Rinse the dried hijiki seaweed in cold water and soak it in a bowl of water for 10 minutes.
  • Drain the seaweed and place it in a medium pot with enough water to cover it. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Once the water boils, reduce the heat to low and let the seaweed simmer for about 10-15 minutes until it is tender.
  • While the hijiki is cooking, prepare the dressing. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar, soy sauce, mirin, grated ginger, honey, and vegetable oil.
  • Once the hijiki is done cooking, drain it well and add it to the mixing bowl with the dressing.
  • Add the sliced cucumber, sliced carrot, and edamame beans to the mixing bowl and toss everything together.
  • Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over the top of the salad before serving.
