brown rice sushi salad with seared tuna

I’ve been making a version of this deconstructed sushi salad for years.  It’s easy and satisfies my craving for sushi without having to fuss with rolling it up.  It’s also a lot cheaper than an order of carryout sushi!  This time around, I made it with brown rice to go with the “heart-healthy” theme we chose this month on the Michigan Lady Food Bloggers blog (and discovered I liked it better than with white rice).  The salad also contains avocados and yellowfin tuna, all foods that are recognized for their heart-healthy benefits. (I feel a bit sheepish; as I write this, my blog masthead is of a bunch of raw, fatty beef, about the most un-heart-healthy food out there!) I will tempt you (hopefully) with a few photos, but please hop over here to the MLFB blog for the full post with recipe. (And for another hearth-healthy brown rice salad recipe, check out this post.)
