California Roll Salad

california roll salad

I was supposed to have a sushi date with a friend this week that sadly needed to be rescheduled. To appease my craving for california rolls, I whipped up this little gem for dinner. The best part? Nugget was a huge fan of the ingredients (so long as they were served to him separately) so he got a healthy dose of veggies too! :)


  • ready-to-eat mixed greens (I used half spinach, half field greens)
  • 1/2 an avocado, diced
  • 1/2 english cucumber, diced
  • large carrot, shaved into thin slices (I use a vegetable peeler to do this)
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 1 sheet of nori (seaweed) cut into thin strips
  • 2 cups of imitation crab (pollock) chunks
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • Pepper to taste


In a food processor, chop the imitation crab chunks until finely diced. Move diced crab to a separate bowl. Add mayonnaise to the crab and mix well. Flavor with pepper to taste and set aside. Combine mixed greens, avocado, cucumber, carrot shavings, green onions & nori into a large bowl. Top with crab mixture and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. In a separate bowl, mix sesame oil, soy sauce & rice wine vinegar.  Add dressing to salad and toss. Serve immediately. Enjoy! :)

Makes 1 large meal salad or 2 side salads.
