What is Dulse?

Dulse is a sea vegetable found on both the East and West coasts of North America. Like all seaweeds, it’s an algae, but in contrast to many other commonly eaten species, dulse is a red. The shape, texture, and flavor of seaweed can change dramatically based on where they are harvested or cultivated, but in all cases: dulse is delicious, mild, and versatile. It boasts a sea of nutritional benefits and can be eaten raw and cooked.
