On a random weeknight, I’m not always in the mood to bust out the bamboo mats and start rolling some sushi. Which is why I invented this salad for when the craving strikes. Rice, nori, vegetables, sesame seeds, and a soy ginger wasabi dressing - it’s basically a sushi roll in salad form, no rolling required. —Sarah | Wisconsin from Scratch

In This Recipe
