Introduction

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Salad:
    1 cup brown rice, cooked (1/2 c dry)
    1 head butter or romaine lettuce, chopped
    8 oz. imitation crab meat or cooked shrimp, chopped
    1 English (seedless) cucumber, thinly sliced (and peeled if not organic)
    1 ripe avocado, diced
    1 carrot, grated
    3 T pickled ginger, chopped (available in the Asian section of most supermarkets)

    Dressing:
    3 T rice wine vinegar
    1 T light soy sauce
    Wasabi powder to taste (start with 1/2 t)

    Garnishes:
    1 T sesame seeds
    1 large sheet nori (seaweed), toasted and broken into small pieces


Tips

This is a great way to introduce friends and family to the taste of sushi. Add slivered sushi ginger, bits of nori (seaweed), and sesame seeds to make it even more authentic.


Directions

Combine all ingredients for dressing in a small bowl and whisk ingredients together.

Divide clean, dry and chopped lettuce among four large bowls. Top with crab meat, avocado, cucumber, carrot and ginger. Drizzle dressing over salads, then top with sesame seeds and nori.

    I make a similar salad with quinoa instead of brown rice and baked salmon instead of crab. It's really fantasic - tasty, easy to prepare, and a great way to use leftover salmon. - 11/21/08

    Wow! This is great! I so much enjoy having the tastes of California Roll in a bowl! I've made it with scallops and chicken, too. All good. - 4/3/09

    Exactly like California rolls - very fresh! I used 3 sheets of nori toasted over the stove, and I also toasted the sesame seeds for a nuttier flavor. You could also double up on the dressing & crab for a stronger taste. Best if eaten immediately, or it gets rather soggy. - 11/25/08

    Absolutely wonderful! Perfect for an Orthodox Christian fasting day menu and perfect to fix for guests during a Lenten period! (I used one can of shrimp, drained and one can of lump crab, drained.) - 7/15/09

    I didn't see a mention of the rice in instructions. Does the rice get layered on the lettuce before the rest of the ingredients? - 11/17/08
