Wakame shares many of the nutritional benefits of its close relative Kombu (both seaweeds), although it contains less iodine and more magnesium. Very versatile and easy to use, simply add to miso soups or use to create delicious salads.
This is a fresh and fruity salad that tastes much more elegant than it sounds. It’s perfect for barbecues or as a side dish with a hearty one-pot dish. I love it with a couple of slices of a rustic baguette as a simple dinner on hot summer evenings.
