DIRECTIONS: 

Make sauce by placing all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Pour into a small dipping bowl and set aside. Next, thinly slice all vegetables, fruit and herbs.  Lay a Nori sheet, smooth side up, and spread a thin layer of rice across the entire sheet (leave room at the top and bottom for folding). Next place cucumber, avocado, kiwi, mint and basil pieces in the middle.  Roll sushi one side to the other very tightly. Slice roll into bite-sized pieces (usually grooved lines on Nori sheets to help you). Continue until all filling is used up. Serve and dip into sauce.

 

Notes: 

Do not over stuff.

Use a sushi matt, they are inexpensive and make all the difference.
