Pointers from Rie

  • The dressing can be stored in a clean, covered container and refrigerated for 3 to 4 days. It’s convenient to prepare it and store it in advance.
  • If you don’t have a blender, grate the carrots and onions and mix them thoroughly with the seasonings.
  • There is an increasing variety of salad vegetables available, including frilly lettuce, romaine lettuce, kale, arugula, etc. This dressing goes well with any vegetable, so please try it in different ways.
  • Carrots and wakame seaweed are rich in beta-carotene, which helps protect mucous membranes and boost immunity. The absorption rate is higher when taken with oil, so it is recommended to combine it with high-quality olive oil or nuts.
  • If you mix in an appropriate amount of raw vegetables with different hardness and color than leafy vegetables, such as radish, carrots, purple cabbage, and red onions, the dish will have a much more enjoyable texture and appearance.
