It sounds funny, but don’t wakame or I will wakayou. As cheesy (mmm…cheese) as that sounds, in all seriousness, wakame salad is delicious. It’s a simple salad consisting of vibrant green seaweed that has been seasoned with sesame seeds and sesame oil. It often accompanies Japanese dishes and has a soft, yet crunchy texture.
While many seem to be grossed out by the fact it’s seaweed, it contains many nutritional benefits like magnesium, calcium, iron, folate, and a number of vitamins. The only downfall is it can be pretty high in sodium, but everything in moderation right? It can also be easily purchased at a grocery store now, even non-Asian ones.
