I love seaweed salad! When I go to Japanese restaurants, I often get a seaweed salad for an appetizer. Regular supermarkets don’t usually carry seaweed salad, so if I want to have my seaweed salad fix, I’d have to go to a restaurant (like Benihana) and pay restaurant prices. That’s why I was so excited when I saw seaweed salad for sale at Costco!
Costco is selling seaweed salad of Azumagourmet brand. The Costco seaweed salad is in a refrigerated section, in a plastic container that’s a little under 2 lbs (28 oz to be exact). The description on the Costco seaweed salad container is “Azumagourmet Seaweed Salad – Asian style salads fresh from the sea! The two major components of this delicious, traditional favorite are the quality of the seaweed and the style of the seasoning. Azumagroumet Seaweed Salad is packed with valueable nutrients and is low in calories and fat. Enjoy! Eat healthy!”.
This seaweed salad from Costco tastes exactly like the seaweed salad from restaurants. When I bought this seaweed salad, I was worried that it will have a “canned” taste, but it turned out to be a perfect fresh yummy seaweed salad. This 28 oz container of the seaweed salad is $11.99, and it’s enough seaweed salad to serve a crowd! Considering the fact that a small seaweed salad appetizer at a restaurant is at least $3.99, the Costco seaweed salad is a real bargain.
Seaweed salad is really healthy! The nutritional information of seaweed salad from Costco is 30 calories, 2.5 g fat, zero cholesterol, 140mg sodium, 3 g carb, 1 g protein, 1% vitamin C, 4% of calcium, 2% of iron (per 2 oz serving).
