Something a bit different to have with drinks or as a starter. Based on a Ian Parmenter recipe.

- 1⁄2 cup finely chopped walnuts or 1⁄2 cup pecans
- 3 tablespoons currants
- 1⁄2 cup of good mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 15 rice paper sheets
- 15 leaves of fresh mint

- Combine mayonnaise and sour cream then add to ham mixture, stirring well to combine.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Dip rice paper into hot water to soften, then carefully spread out on a damp tea towel.
- Place heaped tablespoon of Waldorf mixture on edge of wrapper, fold sides in and roll it once.
- Place a mint leaf along wrapper then finish rolling to enclose the leaf.

I would never have thought of using rice paper to make a "sandwich wrap"...it's brilliant. By omitting the ham and the noodles, I ended up with a delicious, fruity, chicken salad rolled up in light rice paper. It was truly tasty, and I'm already dreaming of all the other fillings that I could make. Latchy, this was just GREAT!
