Fresh Spring Rolls

 

Prep time: 45 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS*

  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Fresh mint, chopped
  • Carrots, thinly sliced in 2-inch strips
  • Cucumbers, thinly sliced in 2-inch strips
  • Mango, thinly sliced in 2-inch strips
  • Rice noodles, cooked per instructions on the package
  • Rice papers (spring roll skins), can be found at most major grocery stores

*I like to make them vegetarian, but can add cooked chicken, crab or shrimp, cut into small pieces, if desired.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place each of the ingredients in small bowls ready to assemble
  2. Place a damp kitchen towel on the countertop near the stove
  3. Place 2 inches of water in a large skillet and warm on low heat on the stove
  4. Warm one spring roll skin at a time in the skillet for about 15 seconds, being careful not to overcook because they get gooey and split
  5. Remove the spring roll skin from pan with tongs, place on damp towel and begin to fill the wrapper, placing a bit of each fresh ingredient in the wrapper
  6. Leave room for rolling at the base and sides
  7. Roll the spring roll up from the bottom, then tuck in each side into a tight roll
  8. Slice each roll in half on the diagonal and place on a tray
  9. Dip in peanut sauce (listed under Sauces & Marinades)
