Cucumber Moons with Seaweed Salad
If using fresh seaweed, rinse well to remove excess salt used in packing (or sand if freshly collected). If using dried seaweed, soak in filtered water to re-plump (consult package for soaking time) and drain thoroughly. Cut with kitchen scissors into smaller pieces if too large.
If cucumber peels are thick and/or waxed, peel
with a vegetable peeler (thin-skinned cucumbers may be peeled or not,
depending on preference- alternating stripes of green and white are
attractive too). Cut cucumbers lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with
a spoon. Then cut cucumbers crosswise into "moons". Place cucumber
"moon" slices in the shallow dish with drained seaweed and dressing;
toss to coat thoroughly.
