For My Frugal Foodies: Eat Sushi on the Cheap

Here’s how to satisfy your sushi craving on a budget. This works if you keep your crispers stocked with fresh salad ingredients.

Step 1: Head to Shoprite for the fresh sushi catch of the day (as cheap as $6.99 or as much as $14.99 if you plan to share). Put sushi in fridge while you make salad.

Step 2: Throw together a quick salad with lettuce, carrot, shredded cabbage, cucumber, tomato, avocado or any combo of those.

Step 3: Make Japanese dressing. To do this, reach for your handy personal blender (I recommend the Chefman) and drop the following in:

  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 2 shakes soy sauce
  • 1/2 scallion cut in pieces
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 Tbs. vinegar
  • splash of water

Serve the salad with dressing poured on top. Plate along with the sushi and extra avocado slices if you have them. Economical sushi dinner, complete!
