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.
