This is one of my favorite DIY Sushi recipes. Working above a sushi restaurant is tempting to say the least but buying sushi for lunch everyday can be pricey. I manage to make 10 hearty rolls at home for under $20 (keep in mind I already had brown rice and sauces)! I feel a lot better about spending $2 on lunch compared to the $11 restaurant price! There is no need to be intimidated when it comes to making sushi. There is also no need to purchase a sushi rolling mat (unless you want one of course). I find the most important factor in making successful sushi to be good sticky rice.
What better way to nourish yourself during the hot summer days than with a refreshing kale cashew mint salad? This salad is great for lunch or dinner. No-heat cooking this time of year is such a relief! Dig in to this refreshing salad and let us know what you think!
1 bunch lacinato kale- washed and shredded
2 cups cabbage (green or red) – shredded
