Summer rolls vs spring rolls – TYPICALLY Summer rolls are fresh & spring rolls are fried.
HOWEVER, just google spring roll, you will find hundreds of these “unfried spring rolls” called Vietnamese spring rolls aka summer rolls.
My youngest son calls these – “see through burritos“.
My oldest son refers to them as something way to XXX-rated for this blog…
Whatever you choose to call them, these rolls are healthy & delicious.
So what is it? Basically fresh vegetables wrapped in rice paper which happens to be great for a refreshing appetizer or light lunch.
These are my youngest sons absolute favorite food and a guaranteed way I can get him to eat some veggies. WITHOUT COMPLAINING!!!
I serve these with a yummy peanut sauce.
Daniel: “Mom guess what this sauce is good on?”
and I totally agree. This sauce is so yummy!!!!
Traditionally these rolls are served with a light soy type dipping sauce or a sweet chili sauce.. The rice paper wrap is already so light & refreshing that I like it with a rich creamy sauce to compliment it. Serve it up however you like.
Spring Roll Stuffers – Asparagus, carrots, cucumber, cabbage, avocado, rice noodles, bean sprouts, cilantro, mint, lettuce, sweet colored peppers, shrimp, whatever you would like.
These are great for parties and can be made to fit all types of dietary needs. Raw, Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten Free.
