Make on Fresco
Serves 4-6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 15 minutes   Rated:

Love sushi? Hate rolling it? (I am right there with you.) As much fun as rolling sushi can be on a day when you have the patience and time for it, this salad gives you the full sushi experience, but in bulk and without the fiddle. Couldn’t really ask for more than that, am I right? You’re welcome.
