Makes 4 servings

Sea Palm Marinating Sauce

1 C loosely packed dry sea palm
1 T brown rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1 T tamari
4 cloves garlic

Salad Dressing

1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
2 T Dijon Mustard
1 T lemon juice
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
1/2 C grated Parmesan or dairy-free cheese alternative

1 T nutritional yeast

Salad Ingredients

1 head of romaine lettuce
1 avocado
2 cups croutons (to make these gluten-free, toast up your favorite gluten-free bread and crumble)

Preparation

Place dry sea palm in a bowl and cover with cold water. Allow to rehydrate for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine all ingredients for the marinating sauce in a separate bowl. Set aside.

Rinse the rehydrated sea palm in a strainer then dry this rehydrated sea palm in a salad spinner or with cloth towel. Cut the sea palm into small, bite-size pieces and place in marinating sauce. Allow to marinate for an hour or more, then remove from marinating sauce.

In a separate bowl, whisk olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar until creamy, then whisk in cheese/cheese alternative and nutritional yeast.

Prepare the romaine lettuce in a service bowl. Add croutons and sea palm. Toss with dressing and serve.

Top salads with sliced avocado and herbs of choice. We used a sun dried tomato and rosemary blend.

Voila! A fish-free way to unite land and sea on your dinner plate!
