Vietnamese Salad Rolls

This make a perfect, light summer meal.  The peanut dipping sauce is the key to uniting the fresh ingredients with an intense flavour.

  • lettuce
  • vermicelli rice noodles
  • carrots (julienned)
  • cucumber (julienned)
  • green onions (sliced in 3 inch lengths)
  • cilantro
  • rice paper
  1. Cook the rice noodles by pouring boiling water over them and letting them sit several minutes or until soft.
  2. Dip rice paper into warm water for approx. 30 seconds, until it is flexible.  Place on counter and begin assembling.
  3. First, put your lettuce in the middle of the rice paper, being careful not to place it too close to the edges.
  4. Place your rice noodles, carrots, cucumber, green onions, and cilantro on top of the lettuce and gently roll the rice paper up as you would a burrito.
  5. Place on a serving dish and continue making more :)
Serve the Vietnamese Salad Rolls with this tasty Peanut Dipping Sauce.
