Last week, we received a super-special box from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables containing a smorgasbord of natural, local, sustainable products from the Gulf of Maine. We’ll tell you about everything as we try it, but first, the big news:
The awesome people at Maine Coast Sea Veg will give you (our loyal readers) $1 off your phone or internet order. Just use the code KELSEY when you place your order. This coupon is valid for 60 days.
FYI: Dulse is red algae. It’s supposedly crazy-nutritious and well, it’s basically the bacon of the sea. Yum!
3 apples, cubed
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup grated mild cheddar cheese
handful of dulse
½ cup plain yogurt
1. Heat canola oil in skillet over medium heat. Add dulse and cook until the dulse starts to turn greenish brown (not black—that would mean it was burned), becomes crispy and smells like bacon. (We're not kidding. It really does start to smell a bit like bacon.)
2. Combine apples, raisins, celery and cheese in a large bowl. Toss with yogurt.
3. If you’re not going to eat the salad right away, sprinkle with lemon juice and refrigerate.
4. Add dulse right before serving.
