1 firm-ripe avocado (about 1/2 lb.), peeled, pitted, and sliced
Seasoned rice vinegar
1 to 2 tablespoons shaved bonito (optional)
1/2 pound thin-sliced smoked salmon, cut into strips
About 1/4 cup sliced pickled ginger
About 1 ounce radish (or daikon) sprouts, rinsed and drained

1. Rinse a 1- to 2-cup bowl with cold water and lightly pack 1/4 of the sushi rice salad into it. Invert onto a plate. Repeat to shape remaining portions.

2. Cut nori sheets into quarters. Moisten sliced avocado with rice vinegar.

3. Sprinkle sushi rice salads equally with shaved bonito. Alongside each, arrange 1/4 of the nori, avocado, salmon, pickled ginger, and radish sprouts. Sprinkle servings with tobiko caviar.

4. To eat as sushi, put some of each ingredient on a piece of nori and add chili mayonnaise to taste; fold nori over filling. Or eat as a salad with a knife and fork, adding chili mayonnaise to taste.
