Paleo Kelp Noodle Salad, A Raw Asian Side for Lunch or Dinner

Kelp noodles…such an interesting food product. Of course, if you are the caveman-type that wants to live EXACTLY like the cavemen, then I doubt you’ll try this, but if you are like we are – looking for ingredients that are whole and Paleo – then these little guys are great! The flavor is refreshing, the texture is crisp, like a noodle made of cucumber (but doesn’t taste like a cucumber). I recommend trying them…very neat all the way around. I made a whole pound last night and it was completely gone. Now that I know what to expect, I’ll definitely be playing with them more.

Recipe: Paleo Kelp Noodle Salad


  • 1 lb package Kelp Noodles
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Aminos (or wheat free Tamari if you do soy)
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Vinegar
  • 1 ½ Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • ½ tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 ½ tsp Ginger (fresh)
  • 1 Tbsp Chives
  • 1/3 cup Cilantro
  • Coarse Sea Salt (to taste)


  1. Rinse the kelp noodles in water and cut to desired length. Chop the chives and cilantro, add to the kelp noodles, and set aside for later.
  2. Combine coconut aminos, coconut vinegar, maple syrup, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil and blend until smooth. Make sure there are no remaining chunks – if you are unsure, strain it. You don’t want to surprise anyone with a piece of raw garlic!
  3. Add the coconut aminos mixture to the kelp noodles, toss, and season with sea salt to your liking.
