I am bringing my Asian roots back to the fore with this dish... You won't believe how simple it is really.  I remember the days growing up where we would make hand rolls for dinner, so delicious!  I love the flavors that come out in this simple hand roll. 

This can also be a great dinner party food idea, which I have done several times.  You can make a hand roll bar ~ lay out all the ingredients separately and the guests could build their own rolls.  If you want to make it vegan, just add rice - super delicious, tasty and fun for your guests.

You can buy your nori (seaweed sheets) from many supermarkets.  This time I just grabbed an already cut pack from Trader Joe's.  And great thing about this is that you can really use any type of vegetable to suit your taste buds.  Here's what I used...


For the wraps
Nori (seaweed) sheets cut into squares
Cucumbers, julienned
Red bell peppers, julienned
Daikon radish, julienned
Red onion, julienned
Yellow squash, julienned
Avocado slices or guacamole
Micro greens
Sesame seeds

For the sauce
Equal parts soy sauce or (Bragg's Liquid Aminos) and fresh lemon juice or rice vinegar.
Sesame seeds to garnish
Wasabi, optional

Cut your nori into squares and lay them out on your plate or cutting board.  Add in your ingredients as shown at a diagonal and then fold over like a taco to eat. 

Dip into the sauce and enjoy!
