Broccoli and Corn Salad with Toasted Nori Dressing
Yield: 4 servings
Toasted nori dressing:
2 sheets nori, toasted
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 piece pickled ginger, finely chopped
1 head broccoli, cut into florets
4 cobs Dandy brand sweet corn
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 cup watercress leaves or baby arugula
1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
1/3 cup finely diced red onion
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1. For the dressing, in a blender, pulse the nori, vinegar, canola oil, soy sauce, hot sauce, sesame oil, sugar and pickled ginger until smooth.
2. For the salad, preheat the grill to medium heat. Grease the grill grate well.
3. Season the broccoli and corn with salt and pepper. Grill corn cobs for 15 to 18 minutes or until grill-marked and tender; let cool. Grill the broccoli for 6 to 8 minutes or until grill-marked and tender. When cool enough to handle, remove the kernels from cobs. Chop the broccoli into bite-size pieces.
4. Toss broccoli and corn with dressing; add watercress, carrot and red onion, tossing gently. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Recipe tip: To toast nori, place on a baking sheet and broil for about 30 seconds or until very crisp.
