I love sushi! Like, I super puffy heart sushi. But let's face it: sushi is a pain in the ass to make at home. My rolling skills aren't so stellar, and unless I'm feeding a big crowd, I rarely make DIY sushi. Unfortunately, sushi rolls purchased at restaurants are typically way overpriced.
But of course, Isa Chandra Moskowitz has a solution for that (Doesn't she have a solution for everything?!) — the Sushi Roll Edamame Salad with Green Onion-Miso Dressing from Appetite for Reduction:
It's everything that should be in a veggie sushi roll, but minus the roll. Lettuce, cucumber, carrot, avocado, edamame, nori, green onion, sesame seeds, and more. It may not be quite as fun to eat with chopsticks, but it's tasty and much faster to prepare than homemade sushi.
My sushi salad was even better eaten with my favorite wasabi paste:
I buy this stuff at the Viet Hoa Food Market in Midtown. It's squeezable wasabi in a tube! Perfect for topping bites of salad.
What would you put on your dream sushi salad?
