      This was truly outstanding! As I'm not a seafood person, I poached a small chicken breast, tore it into shreds and tossed it with the soy, sugar and rice vinegar. I then just laid everything out and we helped outselved to whatver combination we fancied! The red curry mayo is awesome to add a nice kick to the rolls. The cashew dipping sauce is the star of this recipe though; I made it the night before and couldn't stop eating it with a spoon! Totally addictive and wonderful. We loved it so much we ended up spooning it on the inside of our rolls before rolling, as you get more that way than through dipping! This is just so perfect for a hot Aussie night - thanks so much Daydream!
