Soft salad (sofuto sarada) is a salty, dry Japanese rice cracker snack food trademarked by Kameda Seika. The name derives from the fact that it is softer than traditional senbei, and that salad-yu (sarada-yu, Japanese for vegetable oil) is used in the manufacturing process. The company decided to use the term "salad-flavored" rather than "salt-flavored (shio-aji)" in order to have a more fashionable, western-sounding name. However, since the name is confusing, the name is often unofficially appended as soft salad senbei. This article is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License.
