  • 2 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons neutral-flavored oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons white sesame seeds

Directions

Rinse and drain kelp noodles. Cut into 3-inch pieces; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together tamari, vinegar, oils and mustard. Add noodles and toss to combine. Marinate for 15 minutes.

In the meantime, toast sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until they start to pop, 2 to 4 minutes; shake the pan frequently. Allow to cool and then grind slightly.

Combine marinated noodles, ground sesame seeds, cucumber, carrots, bok choy, bell peppers and green onions. Toss gently and serve.
