Sushi Salad Recipe

Sushi Salad RecipeThis past summer my husband and I got into the groove of enjoying daily salads. It was a fun challenge, but from time to time I found myself missing my favorite food- sushi! When I saw Talia's recipe for sushi bowls I got inspired to try sushi as a salad! I surprised Jeremy with this offbeat salad and he wanted me to make him a second one later that day. Success! Here's the recipe- 

Sushi Salad, serves 2-4

Needed: 1 ten oz. bag of lettuce (I like to combine a spring mix with a romaine mix),4 sticks of crab (or lobster or imitation crab), 1/2 an avocado, 1/2 a lemon, sriracha, wasabi sauce, mayonnaise, roasted sesame seeds, seaweed sheets. 

In the bottom of a large serving bow, combine 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise (depends on how much salad you are making, use an amount proportional to how much salad dressing you like on a salad), a teaspoon of sriracha (more if you are feeling daring) and a teaspoon of wasabi sauce. Next, add the juice of 1/2 a lemon and mix your sauce with a spoon. Then add all the lettuce and toss the salad in the dressing. Sprinkle sesame seeds to taste. (I'm "enthusiastic" about sesame seeds so I always over-do it!) Add a little more wasabi sauce and some cut up pieces of seaweed paper, then mix your salad again. Use a fork to shred your crab meat and add it to the top along with half an avocado. Enjoy! Sushi Salad Recipe I hope you love it as much as we do! Have a great weekend, Elsie

  • Sushi… salad!? Omg, you guys are geniuses. I’d love to give a try. Sounds really interesting and yummy 🙂

  • This looks so yummy…Im going to go to the store and try this tonight:)

  • I don’t really like sushi, but that looks AMAZING!


  • Oh, this sounds great! I think I would toss it with some brown rice too, and maybe a little asparagus.

  • Deconstructed sushi bowl…that’s the name of a similar salad I once had in a very fancy restaurant. Now that you gave us the recipe I don’t need to go there anymore!

  • ::drool:: i love me some mayo + sirachi mix. its good on some burgers too. 😉
    making this this week! thanks for the food inspo

  • It’s beautiful to look at. I also like all the ingredients in the salad. I might substitute wasabi dressing with a Japanese sesame dressing.
    Thank you for sharing.

  • omg yes! sushi is my favorite too..but it’s a pain to make sometimes. awesome salad recipe! mmm imitation crab haha, love it!

  • This looks incredible and really healthy! Anything that helps dress up those vegetables to make it palatable for my husband is a keeper!

  • This is such a great variation on the sushi bowl! I’m glad you were inspired to create something new!

  • yummy! What a great recipe!

  • this looks soooo delicious !! I will definitely try to make it !

  • It looks so yummy, too bad i’m not a big fan of suchi.. But maybe i like it better this way! Think i’m going to give it a go some time (: Thanks for sharing this Elsie!

  • That looks so good. You could also try actual seaweed in it instead of seaweed sheets. You can buy the dehydrated stuff from any asian grocery and you soak it in water and it gets kinda chewy and really really good for you. 🙂

  • Oh my god I looove this idea. Sushi and I have a real thing going on and I WANT to kick my relationship with salads up a notch, so maybe this is the way!

  • What a cool idea! I usually avoid sushi so I avoid too much rice. This is the perfect alternative 🙂
