+ Nori is a red seaweed that becomes green or black once dried. The large dried sheets are often used to make sushi rolls but you can also buy it in flakes to sprinkle through salads or coat seafood or meat. Find it in health food stores and select greengrocers.
The sesame Tamara dressing is to die for. I don’t enjoy broccoli
