I'm from New Orleans. All of my favorite sushi places there serve a seaweed salad that has litte green chopped bits of seaweed in it. The texture is nothing like any seaweed salad that I have had out here. Out here, the wakame is leafy large green sheets of seaweed. Back home, the seaweed salad is like little greenish cubes of chewy seaweed, I guess. I was told that this was "wakame" there and that the leafy stuff is "wakame" here. Does anyone know if this is the same item and where I could get the New Orleans style seaweed salad out here?
