 Prep Time:  30 minutes

Cook Time:  30 minutes
Yield:  4 servings

Level:  easy

Nutrition Facts: Kelp is one of the few foods that is loaded with Iodine. It also contains lots of fiber, calcium and protein.  It is very low in calories so a wonderful choice for losing weight. 


  • Dried shredded kelp or wakame:  1 cup

    • This can be found in any Asian grocery market and the package looks like the     picture above.

  • Cucumber:  1, shred it or slice it. Get rid of excessive water

  • Balsamic vinegar or Chinese dark color vinegar:  1 tbsp 

  • Extra olive oil (EVOO): 1 tbsp 


Optional Ingredients:

  • Garlic: 2-4 cloves, pressed with a garlic press

  • Sesame oil: 0.5 tbsp. It can be found at any Asian store.

  • Cilantro: cut into small pieces, 1 tbsp

  • Green Onion:  1, cut into short pieces

  • Chili oil: 1 tsp. 

  • Sea salt or pink salt

  • Roasted sesame seeds: ½ tbsp

  • Small amount of cherry tomatoes, blue berries or strawberries


  • Soak dried kelp in water for 30 minutes to one hour until it completely softens.

  • Rinse the kelp well and then boil it at medium to low heat for 30 minutes. Then completely drain the water out. I recommend you cook a large amount of kelp at one time and then store it in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for at least a week.

  • Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Then sprinkle sesame seeds on the top.
