GARDEN FRESH SPRING ROLLS

These are one of the easiest and healthiest appetizers around - and you can play with the ingredients based on what you have in your fridge!

They're crunchy, fresh and perfect for this time of year so enjoy and feel good about yourself while you do!

Ingredients:
12 (8 inch) round sheets rice paper
1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped small
1 carrot, Julienne cut - thin
1 cucumber, Julienne cut -thin
1 green bell pepper, julienne cut - thin
1 package of cooked shrimp, cubed
1/2 of a bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jar of sweet and sour sauce for dipping
Directions:
Soften the rice paper sheets by emerging them in warm water until softened - about half a minute.
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl except the dipping sauce.
Place one sheet of the rice paper on a hard surface and fill with about 2 tablespoons of the filling - be sure to leave room to roll and seal the rice paper!
Fold the sides of the rice sheet over the filling and roll up then re-moisten the rice paper edges and press them down to seal the roll.
Place the finished spring roll seam side down on a serving platter.
Garnish with a few sprigs of the cilantro and serve with a small bowl of the sweet and sour sauce.

These go great with some of my tropical martinis from The Martini Diva™ - feel free to use the search bar on the right sidebar and search for orange juice and pineapple juice and most of the tropical martinis will pop up on one page! You can also check the blog archives!
