Nori Vinaigrette Recipe

Living in California, we eat fresh salads. A lot. We love to use seaweed in our dressing to replace salt, add minerals, and boost the savory-ness. Here's two of our favorite takes on nori vinaigrette. 

NORI VINAIGRETTE, VERSION ONE:

Adapted from Superfood Seagreens by Barton Seaver.

  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1 Tablespoon wine vinegar
  • 1 sprig thyme, leaves only
  • 2 teaspoons dried nori flakes
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Combine all ingredients and whisk to incorporate. Let sit 10 minutes before using. 

NORI VINAIGRETTE, VERSION TWO

Adapted from Bon Appetit

  • 2 Tablespoons nori, toasted and flaked
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Tablesppon mirin
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 oz. tender lettuces (such as Bibb or Butter Lettuce)

Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Toss lettuces and dressing in a large bowl to coat. Enjoy!
