Great idea for a sushi loving salad eater! I made the recipe exactly as written and we really enjoyed it. All the flavours of our favorite veggie sushi without the hassle of making the rolls. Good one evelyn!

I'm going to a potluck tomorrow so I made a half recipe of this salad today and had some friends sample it for me. Omg, I could have tripled this and it would have been gone. Everyone including me LOVED it. I used brown rice and a seaweed black sesame seed seasoning instead of the nori strips but I gotta say this was like eating a California roll. My supermarket stopped carrying real canned crab so I bit the bullet and used the immitation stuff, who cared...NO ONE!!! They ate it all before I could even snap a photo. So with this test in mind, I'm tripling the recipe for tomorrow. Don't okit the ginger...it is essential to the flavor! I'm going to rock the potluck tomorrow. GREAT RECIPE!!!!

This was a great recipe and worked very well as a salad proir to Cioppino. My rice turned yellow with the addition of carrots

Delicious salad! This tasted really close to a California Roll, and is way easier to assemble. I especially like the addition of the minced pickled ginger and nori...made it seem authentic. :) I didn't include ginger juice in the dressing, because I'd added a lot of pickled ginger to the salad. Thanks for posting!

AMAZING! I love shushi but, like so many others, can't seem to master the art of making the rolls. This is a great tasting and easy alternative. I omitted the ginger and added more avocado simply because that's my preference. I've begun to apply this concept to some of my other sushi favorites - thanks so much for posting it! :o)

Tastes just like a California Roll!! We loved it ~ a truly unique salad that cures those sushi cravings for sure. I used jasmine rice and followed instructions pretty much as planned. I skipped toasting the sesame seads as I already had some toasted. I also used wasabi paste (about 1 tsp) instead of powder as that's what I had on hand. Thanks for the wonderful salad experience!!

This is an excellent salad. I prepared it to serve on a salad bar for some pretty picky eaters and left out the avocado (afraid of browning) and the dressing (afraid it would be too spicy for their tastes). I added some extra rice vinegar to up the flavor. They inhaled it, and I had no leftovers. I saved back a small portion for my own lunch and added the avocado and dressing...it was divine. :) I love California Rolls, and will be making this salad often. Thanks for posting.

A great tasting recipe. I made this recipe with one change; I used a short-grain sushi-rice, a Calrose type, which I microwaved.
