So easy, so elegant. The wasabi mayo gives a bit of heat and the avocado lends delicious, buttery texture.

Instructions

  1. To make wasabi mayonnaise, in a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, wasabi paste and soy sauce until smooth.

Notes

We prefer the flavor of the wasabi mayo when made with wasabi paste, but if you can't find it, wasabi powder works, too.
