This deconstructed summer sushi bowl contains some of the most refreshing ingredients typically found in sushi. Mango is the true star in this dish, although it has a few close runner-ups like the vegan spicy mayonnaise drizzle and the kimchi. The flavors and textures of the ingredients of this dish mesh very well together and can easily be turned into sushi rolls instead of a sushi bowl if that’s what you’re in the mood for.
