Arame Salad

Submitted by: TRAVELNISTA

Introduction

Arame is the most mild tasting of all sea vegetables. It is high in calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium, and vitamin A as well as being a good dietary source for many other minerals. Arame comes in dark brown strands, has a mild, semi-sweet flavor, and a firm texture.

Don't be scared by the prep time. Most of the 60 minutes is while your arame rehydrates and softens and to let your flavors marinate on the counter.

Ingredients

    1/2 oz arame sea vegetable (about 1 cup loosely packed)
    2 large Cucumbers (I leave the peel on for extra vitamins and
    fiber)
    1/2 small Onion
    1 large Sweet Red Pepper julienned
    1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
    1/2 fresh squeezed juice of 1 Lemon
    2 tsp. Hot Garlic Sauce
    Sea Salt to taste

Directions

Place the arame in a bowl with ample cold water to cover and let stand until rehydrated, about 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and drain well.

To put the rest of the salad together:
Wash your cucumbers and cut the ends off. Slice thin and place in bowl.

Slice half of a small onion into paper thin slices and place in bowl.

Julienne the red pepper and place in bowl.

Add the rest of the items to bowl and mix in really well.

You can eat as is but it tastes much better the longer the flavors marinate. I usually leave mine on the counter for at least an hour. I do not put into the refrigerator because I don't want the sesame oil to congeal.
