A red alga with leafy, red fronds similar to lettuce, dulse (Palmaria palmata) is a seaweed often used in salads and side dishes. Found in both the Atlantic and Pacific, dulse has been used in northern European diets for centuries. Full of minerals, dulse has a salty flavor when dried which is often taken advantage of in the flavoring of common dishes like eggs and potatoes. Its flavor has even been likened to the taste of bacon and can be a salty addition to a bag of popcorn.
