Seaweed Salad

Lunch today - - - seaweed salad! I cannot even begin to describe how totally delicious and intoxicating this delectible little dish is! I'm like one of Pavlov's dogs when the words 'seaweed salad' are uttered. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Here is a recipe.

o 3/8 oz dried wakame seaweed (stems or rib)
o 3 tablespoons light soy sauce
o 3 tablespoons rice vinegar (without seasoning)
o 1 teaspoon sugar
o 2 tablespoons sesame oil
o 2 scallions, thinly sliced
o 1 teaspoon finely grated ginger
o 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Soak dried wakame in warm water for about 5-8 minutes
Drain and place in a bowl of water. Quickly remove and plunge into cold water
Mix vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, and ginger in a bowl until sugar is dissolved.
Mix wakame and dressing.
Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and scallions
Chill in fridge prior to serving
