I want to encourage people who are not familiar with sea vegetables to try them. Some types of sea vegetables, that I am trying not to call ‘seaweeds’, have slimy texture and fishy smell. I understand it might be challenging for some people to eat them. I think ‘Kombu’ (kelp) is easier to try. Dried shredded kelp can be simply soaked in water and used for cooking or salad. Try this salad. I hope you like it.


2 to 4 Servings


20g Dry Shredded ‘Kombu’ (Kelp)
1/4 Onion *thinly sliced
1/2 Carrot *sliced into fine strips

  1. Soak Dry Shredded ‘Kombu’ (Kelp) in cold water for 10 minutes, drain, rinse and drain again.
  2. In a mixing bowl, place Soy Sauce and Wasabi, stir to combine, then add Mayonnaise and mix. Add all other ingredients and combine well. Season with Salt if required.
