  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons tamari
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Dash cayenne

Equipment

  • medium bowl
  • fine-mesh strainer
  • cutting board
  • peeler
  • grater
  • spoon
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • citrus juicer or reamer
  • measuring spoons
  • rubber spatula

Put all the ingredients in a medium bowl and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Any ideas re safety of eating sea veggies with iodine for those of us with thyroid disease?  Thanks.

Hi Patti,

You should always consult a health practitioner if you have particular health issues. Sea veggies do have iodine, so check first before eating if you have a health issue.
