Asian Arame/Seaweed Salad

Arame is a species of seaweed or kelp that has a mild, semi-sweet flavor. Arame comes in a dried form and due to it's mild flavor, can be reconstituted and added to dishes without impacting the flavor. Just one serving of arame provides over 100 percent of the daily value for iodine and 50 percent of the daily requirements for calcium. Arame has been reported to improve overall immune function, and condition of hair skin and nails. Due to it's high content of lignans it has been the focus of several anti-cancer studies.

Hi, enjoying all the recipes here. Just wondering why you replaced the wakame. I recently saw video on radiation in most Japanese products, especially tea.
