Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • large cucumber
  • 1/4 cup
    dried hijiki
  • small daikon radishes (or 1 large radish)
  • red scallions
  • 2 tablespoons
    gomasio (Japanese Sesame Salt)
    Asian-style ginger vinaigrette to dress the salad or plain tamari
  1. Soak the dried hijiki in water for ten minutes, then boil it for fifteen minutes. Drain the seaweed and reserve it.
  2. Now, slice the cucumber. Peel and slice the daikon radishes. I like to use a spiral slicer for this dish, but it’s far from necessary. Mince the scallion. Mix all the vegetables together with the sesame salt and dress the salad very lightly with either an Asian-style ginger vinaigrette or with a touch of plain tamari.
