Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 16 snow peas
  • 8 okra
  • 1 1/2 cucumbers
  • [Dressing]

    • 1 1/2 tbsp sesame oil (white)
    • A pinch of salt
    • 1 tsp konbu tea (powdered)
    • 1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
    • 1 tsp wasabi paste
    • 1 tbsp white miso
  • Salt

Directions

1

Prepare the [Dressing]. Whisk the sesame oil and salt in a bowl. Add the konbu tea, whisk and then add the rice vinegar. Continue whisking. Once the tea has dissolved, add the wasabi paste, whisk and then, finally, add the white miso.

2

Remove the stems and strings from the snow peas. Remove the okra calyxes. Cut the cucumbers lengthwise into four. Cut into 3 cm lengths and use the blunt side of your blade to pound and crack them.

3

Parboil the snow peas in lightly salted boiling water. Remove and immerse in cold water and drain thoroughly. Cut diagonally in half.

4

Use the same boiling water to blanch the okra. Drain thoroughly and cut into the same size as the cucumbers.

5

Toss the snow peas, okra and cucumbers in the [Dressing].

Advice

Pour any remaining [Dressing] into a sauce bottle to serve with the salad.
