Sushi Salad

I feel like I post about sushi all the time.  I don't have a problem, really...  The other night some friends came over to roll some maki and of course, I ended up with loads of leftover vegetables and rice. Perfect opportunity for a new creation!   The next day for lunch, I whipped up this simple salad -- Light and delicious!  

There are probably plenty of variations on this; get creative!

Sushi Salad

sushi rice-- brown rice is a healthier option, but use what chu' got
a couple splashes of rice vinegar
carrots- juillened
cucumber- diced into little pieces or chunks
avocado- diced 
wasabi paste or powder -  I just mixed the powder right into the rice bowl for a zing
a few dashes of soy sauce 
sesame seeds to garnish

Chop up all ingredients and toss them with the rice-  Easy as pie! 

Be the judge on how much you'd like to put into the mix.  If I were to make it again, I'd put even more vegetables in it and leave some avocado out to mix in last so they don't get squashed and disappear.  Serve on a plate of greens or mix up some miso soup to accompany this fresh salad!
