Tips and Tricks

  • For the best taste, eat the salad while it is fresh. Otherwise, the ingredients will wilt.
  • Try adding other fruit or vegetable ingredients, such as mango.
  • There is no need to add any spices or seasonings, as the seaweed is naturally salty.
  • Serve this as a side dish for fried or grilled foods.
  • Rinse pokpoklo thoroughly to remove any dirt.
