Fresh Chopped Salad Rolls (fresh spring rolls)

Category: Appetizers and Dips

Suitable for a: vegan diet



Spring Roll Filling

1 head cabbage, shredded

2 carrots, grated

2 inch piece of ginger, finely chopped

2 cloves of fresh garlic, pressed/minced

1/3 bunch cilantro, finely chopped

4-5 mint leaves, finely chopped

1 Tb. lime juice

Sweet and Sour Sauce

1 cup lime juice

1 whole, fresh lemon (peels and seeds removed)

¼ cup Agave nectar

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 clove fresh garlic

6 leaves fresh basil

1 cup water



For Rolls:

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings. Let rest for 1 hour to allow flavors to blend, if possible.

1 package of dried rice paper sheets (found in Asian markets).

Soak rice paper sheets in water until soft (or I've discovered brushing with a pastry brush until very soft works better), place a spoonful of filling in the center, and roll up like a burrito.

For Dipping Sauce:

Combine all in blender and blend until smooth.

Serve Spring Rolls at room temperature with Sweet and sour Sauce for dipping

Additional comments:


This is similar to how a local restaurant makes theirs so it's the way I have come to like them - adjust ingredients to your preference...

These are the uncooked type of spring-rolls/fresh rolls with the soft, translucent, rice-paper wrapper that you'd find at a vietnamese restaurant.

How long do you have to brush them with the pastry brush for? Is this a soaking wet pastry brush?

This recipe looks great, thanks!

I lay a wrapper flat on a plate. Brush with a very wet brush until the whole thing is wetted down (is that a word?).

Usually I brush it a total of two-three times until it's so soft that it's just about to tear... they are very fragile at this point but roll up nicely and stick to themselves so they stay rolled..
