A delicious, light, spicy salad, excellent for summer cooking! A perfect side to any grilled Asian-style dishes. Wasabi paste may be used instead of the powder if it is more convenient. If you discover you have made the dressing too spicy, adjust by adding more mayonnaise.

**REVISING MY ORIGINAL REVIEW**. We still 100% love this recipe, BUT BUT BUT... I decided to try ELLIEGIRL1's tips of using Nori (roasted seaweed) instead of spinach (as I have done in the past),and grated fresh ginger (I grated it into the cooled rice). These two ingredients put this recipe clear over the TOP and then some (Wish I could give it more stars)! TY TY TY for posting the Nori use! For a potluck dish that has to travel, a dish you want to make several hours ahead, or a salad that has to wait awhile to be served we still nix the lettuce. Nori and Wasabi paste can be found in the ethnic area of most grocery stores. Original review- A TOTAL POTLUCK HIT !! WOW! If you like traditional California Roll sushi you will love this for a change! I have made this several times, but have evolved to totally nixing the lettuce as it tends to get way too limp for our taste! Now, it's just rice, avocado, fake crab, cuke, and I add steamed spinach. Amounts are too your taste. I make the dressing exactly as directed. I now use this dressing on fish, and numerous other things. IT'S THE BEST! I will make this again and again.

A great idea for someone who loves california rolls without the fuss of sushi rice and rolling at home! I used a bit of dry sherry and white wine vinegar in place of rice vinegar. Wasabi paste (1tsp) added some grated ginger to the dressing, crumbled Nori papers and topped it with toasted sesame seeds!

This sald was really great as a main dish on a hot summer's day. We added a bit more wasabi, since we like things spicy, and we cut down on the rice. If you like California sishi rolls, you'll like this salad. Next time will try a bit of sake in the dressing.
