This is a great salad to introduce people to sea vegetables. The mix of sea vegetables can include arame (with a mild sweetness and chewy texture), hijiki (bolder and with a subtle anise flavour), and dulse (with an earthy taste). All sea veg need to be rehydrated by soaking in roomtemperature water just until pliable (10 minutes for arame and dulse, 20 minutes for hiziki), then drained and squeezed. Most supermarkets (and healthfood stores) sell sea veg in the Asian sections.
