Naga-imo and Umeboshi Salad


Sapporo, Hokkaido, JP


This Japan-inspired salad combines a mountain yam, commonly found year-round in supermarkets, with okra stars, crunchy, tart pickled plums, and umami-filled hijiki seaweed for a rainbow of flavors, textures and colors that makes it perfect for hot summers or other times when you don't have much appetite.
