This is for those, like me, who like all the flavors of maki and sushi rolls, but want a quick version. I didn't add the rice to mine in the picture.
To celebrate the onset of summer produce I threw these few ingredients together for lunch today and it turned out great. It just tastes like summer. And because all the ingredients are really juicy you don’t even need a dressing. I found it perfect just as is.
I am trying to really cut down on the amount of nuts and oils in my diet, especially since I can tell I have gained weight with all the nut-based Christmas goodies I was eating. So since I couldn't find a salad dressing in any of my recipe books without either a bunch of nuts or a cup of olive oil, I came up with this one tonight and it was a hit! The only fat is from the avocado and one Tbsp of coconut oil, so it's a great low-fat option. Plus coconut oil is a medium-chain triglyceride which actually helps burn fat! Enjoy!
Got the idea for this recipe while dining at a local restaurant. It’s smooth and creamy. Good with some flax crackers.
