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.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound hijiki, reconstituted and drained well Add to list
  • 2 pounds organic carrots, rinsed and grated Add to list
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced on the bias Add to list

Dressing:

Preparation

Soak dry hijiki in cool water until thoroughly reconstituted (about 30 minutes). Drain thoroughly and combine with the grated carrots.

Whisk the dressing ingredients until completely mixed. Combine with the carrots and hijiki. Garnish with the sliced 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.
