In this hearty side salad that blends sea greens and land greens, fresh salad greens, carrots, radishes, and cucumber get a boost of salinity and texture from three different types of nutritious and delicious seaweeds: kelp, dulse, and Irish moss. The trio of mineral-forward sea vegetables is nicely balanced by rice vinegar dressing. Dulse, a red seaweed that commonly grows in the Northeastern Atlantic and around the UK, and Irish moss, which has a frilly, bushy shape, can be purchased at seaveg.com. Sustainably farmed kelp from Maine can be purchased at atlanticseafarms.com.
