ABERDEEN-TOKYO SALAD

ABERDEEN-TOKYO SALAD

Final approach directly on your plate... A one way Aberdeen-Tokyo for this terribly yummy salad...
It will be a hit amongst your friends and family. Children tend to adore this salad as well... Easy-peasy, fresh, healthy and well balanced in proteins. This salad is perfect in itself. Dashi means "stock" in Japanese. It is made with dry kelp (seaweed) and katsuoboshi flakes (smoked and dry skipjack tuna). You can buy dashi in any asian grocery store or directly at the japan center.
Fasten your seat belts please...


Wine pairing : Meursault (Red) from Burgundy.
