Thank you for the generous replies on my previous thread "What is your definition of Salad?"
Now, I have a more specific question (after eating out in a Japanese restaurant a few time), which I like to hear from you. As the title suggests:
"Do you consider Seaweed Salad a salad?"
I am interested in your view, and please feel free to share your reasoning.
I can see why it is a salad because:
It is green, relatively low calories and carbohydrates, served cold, healthy (e.g.: high in iodine).
I can also see why it is not a salad because:
Seaweed is not a plant, and definitely not a vegetable or leaf...
So what is your guts feeling?
1) Yes, it is a salad
3) No, it is not a salad
*edited* Several people have asked me about my previous statement about seaweed not being plants. Seaweed are algae and belong to the Protista Kingdom, not the Plantae Kingdom (plant). I hope this help.
