The great thing about this recipe is that it is flexible. Add stuff you like (chopped red cabbage is a personal favorite), omit stuff you don't. Do watch the vinegar, it does benefit from sugar. Also I don't use any salt because of a restricted diet. Experiment and enjoy!

I thought this was excellent, and my family agreed. I omitted the red onion and the wasabi, and replaced it with avocado cubes. I added this individually so it wouldn't become mashed up along with the salad. This was just my personal preference. Next time I might throw in some smoked salmon. I'll definitely make it again.

I enjoyed this rice! I added smoked salmon (slivers) The dressing was good. I soaked my nori sheet before I julienned it..might have changed the texture a bit. Thank you for posting!
