Summer Salad Rolls

Julienne Vegetables
Sometimes, I only want to eat a cold meal on a hot summer day. Salads are a great option but I always want something hearty to eat with it. Now hearty for some could mean meat or potatoes, but in this recipe hearty means rice paper rolls. I bought a pack from an Asian market. I had so much fun making them. I wish I had more time to make a dipping sauce with it, hopefully next time.
1 Carrot
1 Lettuce Head
Stuffing the Rice Paper
1 Mango
2 Green onion bulb
Rice Paper rolls.

Serving: 6 rolls

Julienne the mango and green onions and cut the lettuce very thin. Grate the carrots to save time and effort. Warm up a little bit of water in a large pot so the rice paper can easily get soaked without folding on itself. Once the water is warm to the touch turn off the stove, soak a rice paper for fifteen second and place it on a plate. Stack all the vegetables on one side of the paper and start to roll while tucking the stuffing. After one fold tuck in the corners and finish the last fold. The tighter you tuck in the better vegetable hold up to dipping sauces. They came out fresh and hearty without any meat :), I made some shrimp and veggie ones for my one and only. ;)
