Sea veggies are a great source of natural iodine, magnesium, potassium, and fiber, and offer a range of flavors and textures.
Arame is an especially great sea vegetable to work with because it has a very mild flavor (though it does smell like low-tide while soaking). Arame needs very little to taste great, but this bright mix of veggies and this crazy good dressing make it that much easier to enjoy!
