Mika’s Vegan Seaweed and Cucumber Salad

5 mins (prep 5)

I post this simple little Japanese seaweed salad in honor of my friend Mika. Mika is a phenomenal cook, with a natural flare for flavors. Of all the incredible dishes she has shared with me, this one will always be my favorite. Seaweed and cucumber salads are always bursting with flavor, but they are often made with sauces that contain a lot of sugar. We have modified a traditional favorite using fresh raw lemon juice and agave nectar. This is a quick, easy and a spectacular introduction to seaweed. Give it a go. It is irresistibly delicious!
