Place tuna horizontally in the middle of the nori, being sure that it extends to both edges of the nori. Place bacon, or chopped bacon on nori in the same fashion as the tuna strips.

Roll according to?the technique for making inside out rolls (see below). Cut roll into 6-8 pieces. Serve with wasabi and pickled ginger if desired. Add apple chips for garnish.
How to Make an Inside Out Roll (Ura Maki): Begin with a piece of 4-in by 7-in nori. Place the nori directly on a cutting board, making sure the long end is parallel to the bottom of the board and that the rough side is facing upwards. With fingertips dipped lightly in cold water, spread about 3?4 cup of prepared sticky rice evenly over the entire surface of the nori. Flip nori over so that rice is face down on the cutting board. Add desired ingredients horizontally in the middle of the nori, making sure that ingredients are spread evenly and touch both edges of the nori. With damp fingertips, place thumbs underneath nori while grasping fillings with all other fingertips. Roll the bottom of the nori just over the fillings, making sure to tightly tuck the fillings under the fold. Continue rolling the first fold until it reaches the top edge of the nori. With a bamboo rolling mat covered in plastic wrap, gently shape roll by pressing forefingers on top of the mat while simultaneously pressing thumbs and middle fingers on the sides. Check to see that the seam side of the roll rests on the cutting board before cutting into 6–8 pieces.

Best Bacon Summer Salads

best-bacon-summer-salads

Summer is the ideal season for salads. The hot weather makes us crave meals that don’t involve much (if any) cooking. It’s also during summer that some of us decide to try and lose a few lbs. and salads can be a good way to “eat healthier.”

These salads go beyond the typical bacon salad recipes like the Blue Cheese Wedge and the Cobb. Using a mix of simple and sometimes unusual ingredients, these salads will satisfy your cravings for bacon and healthier dishes that don’t require much cooking. We recommend cooking a couple of lbs. of bacon and storing the cooked slices in the fridge. When you need a few slices, just pull ‘em out, microwave for 15 seconds and add ‘em to your salad.
