We don’t go out to eat that often. We cook a lot at home and now that we have a baby, it is just easier to dine in. We do miss going out for sushi. I can’t even remember the last time we went out for sushi…it was well before Caleb was born. To cure our sushi cravings, we have been making this Sushi Salad for dinner-sometimes twice a week. It is that good. The salad has all of the flavors of sushi, but in an easy rice bowl form.
We’ve made sushi at home before, but it is always an event. I love this salad because you don’t have to mess with rolling sushi, you throw everything in a bowl and you are good to go. The salad has rice, nori, cucumber, carrots, avocado, edamame, pickled ginger, and sesame seeds. The salad is finished off with a light dressing that is made of wasabi, ginger, and soy sauce. You get all of the sushi flavors, but in salad form.
This salad is a vegetarian sushi salad, but you could add some sashimi or any other of your favorite sushi roll ingredients. We buy all of the ingredients for this sushi salad at a local Asian market. Most larger grocery stores should have the ingredients, but if not, go to an Asian market, if you have one nearby.
If you are in the mood for sushi, but don’t want to go out or roll sushi, make this simple Sushi Salad at home. It’s a good one!
