Sushi Salad with Soy-Lime Dressing

Dairy-free, Egg-free, Gluten-free, Low-FODMAP, Nut-free, Vegan

I can’t even begin to tell you how many limes I’ve eaten lately. I originally bought a bag of them at the store, because it was almost cheaper than buying a couple of limes individually. But then we started ordering seasonal organic produce online through Misfits Market , and limes must be in season because we’ve received a handful or so each week for the past two weeks. Thankfully, limes are versatile and make a great addition to a variety of dishes.

This sushi salad is probably one of my new favorite lime-inspired creations because it’s so flavorful and refreshing. It is perfect for a low-fuss weeknight lunch or dinner because it’s quick, easy and healthy.

I recommend serving it with some kind of protein, like grilled fish, chicken, tofu or nuts to make it a complete meal. Avocado, sesame seeds and cucumber slices also make nice additions.

With a portion of protein, this recipe serves two people.
