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.

  1. 1/2 cup dulse fronds, soaked for 1-2 minutes, then cut into bite size pieces
  2. 2 large handfuls peppery rocket or arugula or other salad greens
  3. 1 stick celery, finely sliced
  4. 1 carrot, shredded
  5. 1/4 cup toasted walnut halves

  7. 2 tsp flax oil
  8. 2 tsp Ume plum seasoning
  9. 1 tsp sweet white miso
  10. 2 tbsp organic apple juice
  11. ¼ cup filtered water

Place the greens and dulse in a salad bowl along with the celery and carrot. Drizzle on the dressing and toss well. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Garnish with the toasted walnuts.
