These springrolls will bring you all the freshness and flavour you cannot find in the fried springrolls. Everytime we have a ladies' lunch, I will always be asked to make them. It is easy to make and the ingredients can be found in either chinese, thailand or vietnamese groceries stores.

Wow...these are very similar to the ones served at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant! When I make them, I omit the mint and I just love to eat them with the spicy hot chili sauce! YUM!
