Caprese salad roll

Weird sushi is nothing new here – if you look back in the archives, we’ve got everything from burrito sushi (not to be mistaken with a sushi burrito) to Thanksgiving sushi. But oddly enough, I’ve never tried caprese salad in sushi – until now!

I was expecting this one to be a bit odd, but it turned out surprisingly well – the mozzarella didn’t clash, and the basil worked excellently – kind of like shiso leaves in kimbap. All in all, I’d recommend this one!
