Seaweed Salad Medley | Ensaladang Lato

Ensaladang Lato

Lato is a seaweed that is commonly found in the Philippines. It looks like a tiny green grapes and tastes like the sea when you bite into it. In this recipe, Chris Urbano will be using two seaweeds, Lato and Guso. Guso is a woody looking seaweed but tastes the same. Pair this salad with red salted eggs for additional flavor.
