Lay out 1 nori sheet on a clean , dry surface. place 1/2 cup of the greens in a narrow layer along the length of the nori sheet, about 1/2 inch from the edge closest to you. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the dressings across the top of the greens. Layer on-fourth of the avocado spears along the top, keeping all the ingredients in a narrow line. Fold the edge of the nori closest to you over the filling. Gently roll the nori away from you, tightly and evenly, into a firm, snugly wrapped roll. Seal the exposed edge of the nori to the roll by wetting it with pure water or dressing. Repeat to make 3 rolls. Cut each roll along a diagonal into 2 pieces with a sharp knife.
