you just have to get some seaweed and season it with dressing which is typically a mixture of sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce and perhaps sugar to taste. If you scroll down to the very bottom of the following thread, you will see some useful info as well.

Seaweed Salad recipe 2004/9/11 06:46
Found this recipe on internet.


Or, you can buy the salad pre-made and dehydrated. Just add water. There are various brands but this is a photo of one of them.

Ocean Greens

Otherwise, I recommend following Uco's suggestion of using your fave search engine.

It is Wakame 2005/7/15 08:28
It is wakame. I posted on another old thread, too:

The seaweed salad is called "goma wakame", and the seaweed is "wakame".

Here is a photo:

You can buy it pre-made on the internet (search for "goma wakame", for example,http://www.sushifoods.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=14115&Category_Code=perfoodprods&Product_Count=4 - here are the ingredients: Seaweed salad or goma wakame is seaweed blended with soy sauce, vinegar, onion powder, red pepper, sesame oil and seeds) or buy the seaweed in many stores or over the internet (search for "wakame", for example, http://www.quickspice.com/cgi-bin/SoftCart.exe/scstore/japanesefoodseaweed.shtml?E+scstore ).

Here is a recipe I found:

Vinegared Wakame Seaweed

60 grams fresh wakame seaweed
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
dash salt
3 tablespoons dashi stock
kinome sprigs for garnish

Wash fresh wakame seaweed well and boil lightly. Briefly immerse
in water to improve color, remove roots and shred.

Mix vinegar dressing.

Wash kinome sprigs and drain.

Drain wakame seaweed and serve, pour vinegar dressing over and put
kinome sprigs on top.

Here is another recipe:

Serves 4

2g dried wakame
1 cucumber
150g can mandarins
3tbsp rice vinegar
1tbsp sugar
some salt
some white sesame

1 Reconstitute the dried wakame with water, then drain it. Wash and thinly slice the cucumber with salt to soften it, then rince in water and drain. Mix the wakame, cucumber
and mandarins.
3 Mix the vinegar with the sugar and 1/3tsp of salt, and mix with the salad. Garnish with the sesame.

Here is another recipe:


Wakame Seaweed Salad With Gomasio

Seaweed is great in salads.

What You Will Need
2 ounces fresh wakame seaweed
2 Japanese cucumbers
assorted young greens (mesclun)
1 tablespoon su rice vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons grapeseed or other neutral oil
pinch salt
pinch fresh white pepper
prepared Chinese mustard

What Now?
Pour hot water over fresh wakame seaweed. Immerse in water and drain. Cut into 1 inch lengths.

Wash the cucumbers then take a fork and run it along the skin from tip to tip on one side and then the other to score it to make a simple pattern. Japanese cucumbers are much more delicate than Western varities. If you cannot find them, use a single English cucumber, slice it in half and seed it. Cut on the bias into thin rounds and sprinkle with salt.

Tear the baby greens into bite-sized pieces and arrange in a bowl.

Mix and stir the dressing ingredients.

Mix seaweed, cucumbers with the dressing and then place them ontop of the greens. Garnish with gomasio (sesame salt).

i think i know which seaweed it is 2008/6/27 15:03
In asian stores, there are sometimes packets of unseasoned seaweed that look just like the seaweed salad we all love so much. One of these packets was labeled Wakame Stem Sliced. The wakame leaf is broad and thin, looks nothing like the salad. However, the stem might make more sense...

I have been able to purchase this item in the past and I paid about $18.00/kilo. However, that was something like a wholesale price in 2005.

cost of seaweed stem 2009/3/20 09:17
Hey! I just got some salted seaweed stem at the asian store near my house. It's the stringy kind for $1.99 (seven ounces) in a packet. There's tons of different kinds of seaweed, different precut widths, etc. It looks the same as the restaurant seaweed salad.

Ingredients for Japaneese Seaweed Salad 2009/8/30 05:13
Agar Agar
Kikurage Mushroom
Sesame seeds
sesame oil sugar salt vinigar red peppers
most sushi places get their seaweed salad in bulk and contain MSG. This is not good. So try making the salad without it using the ingredients that I have listed.
