Vietnamese Summer Rolls

IMG_3385Hi! Hi! We made these the other night for a light dinner and they were absolutely perfect! They hit the spot and were not too heavy and they were super easy to make! I know some days you can come home from a long day and the last thing you want to do is make a complicated meal. This dinner is simple and only takes a few minutes and requires no heat so its perfect for a hot summer day.

Here is what you will need-

For the summer roles:

  • 1 packet of rice paper
  • 1 bag of carrots already shredded
  • 2 avocados thinly sliced
  • 1 bag of lettuce (any kind any brand)
  • 1 cucumber thinly shredded

For the peanut sauce:

  • 3/4 cup natural-style creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezedlime juice (from about 1 1/2 medium limes)
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

What to do:

  1. First wet the rice paper allowing it to become soft and easy to rollScreen Shot 2015-07-25 at 6.29.06 PMl
