This is our adaptation of a salad created by Eventide Oyster Co. in Portland, Maine. Toasted seaweed (also called nori) is pulverized to a coarse powder and added to the dressing, lending the dish deep, umami-rich flavor notes reinforced with soy sauce and mirin. Instead of using full-sized sheets of plain nori (the variety used for sushi), we opted for the convenience of an individual package of seasoned seaweed snacks that are available in most grocery stores. Quick-pickled veggies give the salad lots of texture and bright flavor, but keep in mind that they need to pickle for at least 2 hours before they're ready to use. To shave the carrot, run a sharp vegetable peeler down the length of the vegetable.




Don't use a reactive bowl to make the pickles or the vegetables and liquid may take on an “off” metallic flavor. It's best to use glass, ceramic or stainless steel. Don't dress the salad until you're ready to serve so that the greens stay fresh and crisp (if left to stand after dressing, they'll wilt from the pickles' acidity and weight).

30 minutes

  • 4

    ounces red radishes, sliced into thin rounds

If we do want to use nori, should we use the same amount as the seaweed and toast in a dry pan and grind in a spice grinder like the Chef from Eventide does? Thanks.

I found the seaweed to be reallllly strong. I did not care for this which was disappointing b/c I was really looking forward to making it. I used Annie Chung's brand......maybe I should have used an alternate brand?!?

I used a nori sheet. Found in any large grocery store “international section”. You’ll have a lot left over. I used about a 1+inch square and then ground it.

Made a Mussels and Bean Salad and used this to dress a simple greens salad underneath. It was spectacular. I used the Annie Chung's Sesame Nori. Thank you Milk Street!

When I tasted the nori on its own, I thought this recipe was nuts. When I put it all together, though, I was amazed by the flavor. This is wonderful and really different. I used GimMe organic sea salt roasted seaweed. The sheets are thinner and pulverized pretty well in my food processor, since I don’t have a spice grinder. I will make this again!
