June 16, 2014

Mixed Greens & Cucumber Wakame Salad

Dark green leaves of the sea are loaded with such a broad spectrum of nutrients that are not readily available from land vegetables. One of the most delicious ways to introduce sea vegetables into your diet is to create tasty dressings. The variety of vegetables and the light citrus-y dressing make this wakame salad flavourful and easy for people to warm up to.

Serves 4
