Brown rice Sushi salad
I am one of those people that loves sushi and surprisingly enough my two and six year old can’t get enough of it. I tend to make sushi at home but the rolling of the rice and all can get a bit time consuming so today I decided to make a salad version instead!!
This is a good alternative to rolling sushi and the result is still very good.
For those people that do not like raw sushi, I actually don’t give the raw part of things to my kids, adding cooked shrimp, cooked chicken or just vegetables it is a great alternative.
This salad is also very versatile as you can add or omit ingredients to your liking. This is a great refreshing salad perfect for the up coming warmer days so I hope you get to try it.
