Ok.....so I have an obsession with sushi. It's by far one of my favorite foods. This salad tastes just like a sushi roll, minus the fish. So for those of you that love the rice/wasabi/vege combo, this would be a great one to try.
This picture is minus the cucumber, since I didn't have any in the refrigerator. It will still be good, but not as good as if it had the cucumber in it. Also, you leave some of the green on the outside of the cucumber (kind of in stripes if that makes sense) and it makes the salad sssooo pretty!
3 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp wasabi paste (you can find this on the aisle at the grocery store with all the asian foods)
4 cups hot cooked rice, (I use brown for the healthiness of it, but you can use white)
3/4 cup carrot, julienned
3/4 cup cucumber, halved, seeded, and sliced into half moons
3/4 cup edamame, shelled, thawed
1/4 cup scallions, sliced
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
Whisk first 4 ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
Toss rice, carrots, cucumber, edamame, scallions and vinegar mixture together in a large bowl. Season with salt.
Garnish with sesame seeds.
