Sunburst Salad with Sea beans

Sunburst Salad with Sea beans

  • 1 golden beet grated
  • 1 cup sea bean
  • 1 cup carrots shredded
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 2 tbs ginger grated
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbs honey
  • pepper to taste

Soak sea beans over night to remove some of it's salt taste. Mix onion, sesame oil, vinegar, and key lime juice. Let marinade for 10 minutes. In a large bowl toss sea beans, carrots, beets, and dressing. Season with pepper. The dressing is one of my all time favorites. Sea beans tend to be on the salty side so make sure to soak them overnight. Your going to absolutely love this salad! What do you think of it's cool name I came up with?

That is a bright and colourful salad. I have never seen sea bean before. It sounds interesting. I will have to look for it.

Count me in as well for never hearing of sea bean...I'm going to look for them in Greece, near the sea.

This salad is fabulous looking and I'm sure it's still good with some steamed beans.
