Spiralized Sake Carrot Salad with Nori Granola Topping
Adapted from Heidi Swanson. You can substitute toasted seeds or nuts for the granola, but I highly recommend you try the granola. You can find the
Nori granola here
For the salad:
spiralized on thinnest setting
English (hothouse) cucumber,
spiralized on thick noodle setting
very thinly sliced and soaked in cold water until you need it
Sesame Nori Granola
For the dressing:
light brown sugar
freshly squeezed lemon juice
fine sea salt
toasted and seasoned nori sheets,
Toss the spiralized carrots and cucumbers together in a large bowl. Set aside.
Make the dressing--whisk together everything but the oil. Then slowly drizzle the oil into the dressing while whisking briskly.
Drain the onions and toss them into the salad.
Pour about 2/3 of the dressing over the carrot mixture and toss.
Serve the salad in individual bowls topped with a handful of the Nori Granola and the option of more dressing on the side. Garnish with toasted and seasoned nori sheets if desired.
