<Miwa’s tips> ※Watch more on YouTube!
1. You can swap shiso leaf for nori seaweed or any other herbs.
2. Adjust the taste with salt and soy sauce before you serve it.
3. There are many different varieties of umeboshi/pickled plum which all have different sodium contents. Adjust the amount of umeboshi accordingly, between 2-3 pieces.
4. Toss the vegetables with the dressing just before serving, otherwise the moisture will seep out and get too soggy.
Store the dressing and vegetables separately. It will last up to 4 days in the fridge if stored in an air-tight container.
