If you want something light and tasty to offer your guests with drinks or tea, try this colorful vegetarian sushi rice salad. It is seasoned with a rice vinegar dressing, then sprinkled with sesame seeds, shiso, and cucumber. Everyone simply wraps a spoonful of the rice in a small piece of nori, for a casual hands-on snack. It is not difficult to make respectable sushi rice at home. Just make sure not to overcook itβ€”you want firm grains, so be sure to cool the rice as soon as it is done.
