Recipe by V & B
This is a healthy & refreshing meal, that is low-fat and pretty simple to make. It has a bit of an Asian twist to it with the cilantro and curry; especially when you substitute rice paper in place of tortillas. It also make a great appetizer, if you want to slice the wraps into 4 pieces after rolling them.

- To use Rice Paper:.
- Separate rice paper onto 4 plates. Take one rice paper and completely dampen both sides with water. Lie rice paper flat on plate and allow paper to absorb water. After 1-2 minutes, paper will be delicate and flexible (Note: if paper is still hard, dampen hard areas with water, and allow rice paper to absorb. Do not allow paper to sit too long, or it will dry out.). Place about 1/4 C baby spinach in center on rice paper; allow at least 2 1/2" around for wrapping. Place 3/4 C Chicken salad on top of spinach leaves. Fold left and right side of paper, then gently roll; being careful not to tear paper. Repeat the process for the remaining wraps.
