Korean Seaweed Salad Recipe
This seaweed salad is my first Korean recipe on Rasa Malaysia. I love Korean food and I have just started to cook Korean recipes at home.
My Korean friend gave me a bag of dried Korean seaweed or miyeok recently. Miyeok is the Korean version of seaweed and it’s thicker than Japanese seaweed called wakame.

Simple recipe but delicious…..thanks for the recipe
Wonderful taste, exactly like Korean restaurants–here they add daikon, carrots and round
onions (salted and squeezed to remove water) I guess to stretch it and for color. I love your
flavoring, it matches my taste buds. Love wakame always use it in soups with anchovy, beef
or seafood powders, tofu and daikon also added.
