Summer Rolls

Ingredients

  • 8 rice paper wrappers
  • 1 ounce rice noodles prepared
  • 1 - 2 cups cooked chicken or other protein
  • 4 - 6 leaves butter lettuce
  • 8 green onion or scallion cut lenth-wise
  • 1 carrot julienned
  • 1 cucumber julienned
  • fresh mint leaves
  • fresh cilantro or flat leaf parsley
  • peanut sauce optional for dipping

Instructions

  1. Prepare noodles and vegetables, then set out neatly so you can assemble the rolls quickly.
  2. Make sure you also have a damp towel lined and covered container for storing the rolls before serving. Also a water dish for dipping the wrappers (I typically use a baking pan for this).
  3. Prepare the rice paper wrappers one at a time by submerging them in warm water, according to the package directions.
  4. Fill the rolls individually one ingredient at a time, making sure not to overstuff.
  5. Roll up by folding the top over the bottom, then fold the sides in, then roll the rest of the way down (the same way you would roll a burrito). Place rolls in the damp towel lined container and cover with a damp towel as you go.
  6. Serve with peanut sauce for dipping.
