DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all dressing ingredients in a large bowl. Add all vegetables and the chopped cilantro. Toss thoroughly. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Let set 10-15 minutes for flavors to blend.
  • Soak one rice paper at a time in water until softened. Place on clean towel, and put 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the vege mixture about 2" from the lower edge of the rice paper.
  • Fold the lower edge up to cover the filling. Fold in the sides, and roll up gently. A pretty touch is to sprinkle the upper half of the rice paper with the whole cilantro leaves prior to completing the wrap - they show through the rice paper and are very decorative. Place on a plate, seam down, and cover with plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Serve with a sauce of your choice. Use the same ingredients as the dressing if you like, or experiment with mustard or plum sauce. I like the lighter combinations better with these rolls. Even commercial Chinese salad dressing works in a pinch.
