This dish is awesome because there is no cooking (except for the rice, which I cooked ahead of time anyway), and no tedious rolling or constructing of a sushi roll! It is all thrown in a bowl over lettuce! And what better to dress it with but my cirtus soy dipping sauce that I most cleverly adapted into a dressing by simply adding 2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil!
deconstructed sushi salad + citrus soy dressing
- red leaf lettuce, washed and chopped
- brown rice, cooked and cooled
- fresh veggies, chopped or sliced
- tofu, cut
- furikake (seaweed and sesame)
- or you can cut a sheet of nori into small strips
- citrus soy dressing
- 1 tsp orange zest
- 1/4 tsp grated ginger
- 1 tsp lime juice
- 2 tsp orange juice
- 2 tsp rice vinegar
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp water
- 2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
For the dressing: put everything into a little jar, lid it, shake it up.
Layer your salad however you want, or just toss it all together, but this is what I did:
fresh veggies; avo, cucumber, carrots
furikake (or nori) and dressing!
*note: dressing recipe makes enough to dress two salads
Seriously fresh, filling, and no rolling required.
