Bitter Greens & Dulse Salad with Apple-Miso Dressing

May 21, 2014

Bitter Greens & Dulse Salad with Apple-Miso Dressing

Purple-red organic dulse with its soft texture and naturally rich savoury umami flavour is the most popular Atlantic sea vegetable. Many people enjoy chewing dried dulse as it is a very salty snack.  Dried dulse snipped with scissors into tiny pieces becomes a salty condiment which may be used to season an array of dishes. Dulse adds a unique flavour accent which perfectly complements potatoes, vegetables, rice, and casseroles.  Add to salads, soups, vegetable and pasta dishes, sweet baked potato and stir fries.  The possibilities are endless.
