Considered one of the healthiest foods on the planet, seaweed, a fibre-rich sea vegetable, is a member of the algae family and comes in a trio of autumnal colour: red, brown and green. Sea vegetables may not usually rank high on your Grocery-shopping list, but they’re a fantastic source of vitamins and also help to alkalise the body. Pick up some seaweed from your local healthfood store or Asian grocer and serve this beautiful salad on its own or alongside fish.
