UCSB is a member of the Big West conference, a conference made up entirely of teams from the state of California. So to celebrate UCSB—the conference champ—we decided to make a food inextricably linked with the great state of California: California rolls.
1 cup sushi rice, liberally seasoned with rice vinegar
2 crabs sticks, cut into long strips
1 avocado, cut into long strips
1 peeled cucumber, cut into long strips
sheet of nori
Cover a sushi mat with plastic wrap and cover with a thin layer of rice. Place a sheet of nori on top of the rice. Lay one strip of crab, one strip of cucumber, and one strip of avocado on top of the nori. Roll everything together with the sushi mat. Cut into pieces.
