‘Yukari (ゆかり)’ is a Furikake (Rice Seasoning) made from Red Shiso Leaves. It can be used as a seasoning for a variety of dishes. My family members don’t like its flavour, but I love it and it is very popular in Japan. Just combine Yukari and Vegetable, such as Daikon OR Cucumber, and you can make simple salads. Today I used blanched Cabbage.
100g Cabbage *cut into bite-size pieces
1 teaspoon Yukari *add more to suit your taste
- Blanch Cabbage in slightly salted boiling water. DO NOT over-cook it. Cool under cold water, then squeeze to remove excess water.
- Mix the Cabbage and ‘Yukari’, then set aside for 5 to 10 minutes.
