You can with the salad dressings/marinades from Primal Kitchen Foods.

These are my secret weapon in the kitchen, for food that tastes great without a ton of work.

I’ve always had a thing for mermaids…

I mean, how cool would it be to live in some underwater fantasy world?  Totally love mermaid colors and the whole vibe.

I love seaweed salad and spicy tuna hand rolls.  But my favorite way to eat seaweed is Seasnax.
