Will Run For Sushi (Salad) Bowl with Wasabi Ginger Dressing

Have you ever gone to one of your favourite restaurants only to be sadly disappointed by your meal (or overhear the cook complaining about the mouse problem)?  Farmer & I decided to take a mini road trip in the name of one of my favourite Asian Fusion restaurants and some shopping. Unfortunately, the best part of my meal was the wasabi ginger dressing on my avocado salad.  

There is however, nothing disappointing about this sushi (salad) bowl.  It's one of those meals that you can throw together with  whatever you happen to have in your fridge.  Farmer loves sushi and I am in love with the new PC Organics kale/chard/spinach salad mix so it was a quick fix.  Plus it was a great meal after I was all hopped up on post-run endorphins.  I love pavement.  And my i-pod.  And my new skull socks.

  Wasabi Ginger Dressing
(serves 2)

2 T rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 T sunflower seed butter
1/4 tsp wasabi paste
*1 T minced pickled ginger

In a mason jar combine rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sunflower seed butter and wasabi paste.  Shake it up until ingredients are well combined.   Stir in minced ginger.  Alternatively, you could combine ingredients in a blender.

Sushi (Salad) Bowl

Add any combination of the following ingredients or some of your own favourites.

sticky rice or PC Organics kale/chard/spinach salad mix

  1. Yum, the dressing sounds amazing! I actually have wasabi paste that I had no idea what to do with :)

  2. It's so delicious! I would suggest making a double or trip batch. I can't tell you how long I've had the same tube of wasabi paste in my fridge :)
