Various Japanese food items have become popular in the U.S. and the rest of the western world over the years.
But Natto is something you don’t see much (or at all!), and probably there is a good reason.
Natto is sticky (as you can see in the pictures above) and has a distinctive smell.
My husband and I have been married for about 15 years, and he eats almost everything I eat except for a few things.
Natto is one of them.
It’s amazing how quickly he can detect that I’m eating Natto just with the smell.
On the other hand, I am a huge Natto fan, and I make sure I always have several packages in the freezer.
Natto was served over soba noodles along with tomato, Shiso basil, fried onion, and sweet miso dressing.
This salad may not for everybody, but it is definitely for me!
