kelp noodle salad

The star of this salad is the kelp noodle, a crunchy and raw alternative to traditional noodles. Made using seaweed, sodium alginate, and water, kelp noodles are low in calorie (20 calories per serving) and high in nutrients, especially iodine and calcium. I am not going to try to convince you these look or taste like pasta or vermicelli. Kelp noodles are unique. Their best attribute? Kelp noodles absorb dressing like a sponge, and become tastier with time. My advice, make this recipe a day in advance! Let the salad marinate in this delicious sesame dressing, and devour the following day. The noodles will be softer and tastier then.

While the cilantro and mint are detrimental to making the flavors on this salad come alive, feel free to use whatever you have at hand. Avocado adds creaminess, and carrots crunch, but sweet peas, radishes, cashews, peanuts, and sprouts would be magnificent additions.
