PCC Hijiki Salad
Hijiki (hiziki) is a seaweed, similar to arame. Hijiki is a black, slightly bitter-tasting seaweed and is sold dried in short, coarse strips. Like other seaweeds, hijiki is a rich source of iron, protein, calcium, zinc and iodine. This salad is a favorite of the PCC Deli.
Soak dried hijiki in cool water until thoroughly reconstituted, about 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly and combine with grated carrots.
Whisk oil, mirin, tamari, vinegar and ginger together until completely mixed. Combine with hijiki-carrot mixture. Garnish with green onions and serve immediately.
If you plan to make ahead of time, keep the dressing separate from the carrots and hijiki until ready to serve.
