This 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!
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 🙂
Does this site have a page on Facebook?
This looks so yummy…Im going to go to the store and try this tonight:)
Yum! That sounds really cool! Can’t wait to try.
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.
Holy WOW! That looks great!
Looks great… love avocado!
Wowzer! Will definitely need to try this!
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!
This is so creative!

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.

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!
This looks so yummy! I’m going to try it – perhaps with some tuna or fresh crab meat. JUST pinned it so that I don’t forget! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!
