California Roll Salad

Have you ever tried to make sushi at home? I have. It's not easy. Getting the rice nice and sticky… cutting fish and vegetables into tiny strips… warming the nori (seaweed) so it's flexible enough to roll… then trying to roll everything tightly together… ugh! This is salad is waaaay easier, but will still satisfy your craving for sushi until you can get to your favorite sushi bar (mine is Wasa Sushi - locations in Irvine and Newport Beach). 

California Roll Salad
1/2 cup white rice (cooked)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce (use gluten-free soy sauce if desired)
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
1/4 cup carrot, shredded
1 cucumber, cut into strips
1 avocado, diced
1 cup imitation crab, shredded
2 scallions, green parts only, chopped
2 sheets toasted nori, torn into pieces
2 tablespoons pickled ginger
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar, salt, oil, soy sauce, and fresh ginger. Mix dressing into the rice. Top the rice with all remaining ingredients. Toss lightly to combine.
