California Roll Salad Recipe – Turn your sushi into a salad

We “unrolled” the components of this Japanese dish and drizzled it with spicy mayo. Top it off with furikake, a combo of sesame seeds and dried seaweed (available at most supermarkets).


  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. sriracha
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 to 2 heads Boston lettuce, separated into leaves
  • 1 1/2 c. cooked short-grain brown rice
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, thinly sliced into ribbons
  • 1 avocado, cut into pieces
  • 8 oz. surimi or crabmeat
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • Furikake seasoning, for sprinkling

Found in dishes such as California rolls, surimi is a seafood product made from real fish (usually Alaska pollack) mixed with other ingredients like starch, salt, and crabmeat to make a relatively inexpensive, sustainable shellfish substitute.
