Seaweed salad (known as kaiso salad) is a mixture of nutritious and delicious seaweed that can be enjoyed on its own or added to salads, soups or other dishes for a boost of umami. This seaweed salad includes five different types of seaweed - funori, dulse, wakame, gagome kelp and ma-konbu ("true" kelp) - all sourced from the fishing village of Osatube located on the eastern coast of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost main island. Surrounded by mineral rich waters, Hokkaido produces some of Japan's best seaweed and here they're combined in a specific ratio that allows you to enjoy each seaweed's unique characteristics.
Konbumura works with local fishermen who are familiar with the local sea and know the best times to harvest the different varieties of seaweed. They hand make each of their seaweed salads with five unique types of seaweed that represent the sea of Hokkaido.

Suggested use: To rehydrate, put in a bowl and add enough water to cover. Let sit for 10mins then drain in a colander. Serve with a splash of ponzu. Can also be added directly to soup or miso soup (wash first). Please note that seaweed expands quite a bit when rehydrated.
