This recipe is fun, festive and very easy to prepare. You have to make sure to get your hands on the rice paper (Three Ladies is the brand I have found to work the best; it is available in some grocery stores, Asian markets and Amazon).
-½ cup bean sprouts
-1/3 head green cabbage, chopped
-5 green onions, chopped
-¼ cup fresh herbs (cilantro, basil, or mint)
¼ cup carrots- grated or julienned
-1 T lime juice
-1 T soy sauce*
-½ tsp fresh ginger- grated
-1 cup thin noodles-pre cooked (use Chinese rice or bean thread noodles)
*use the gluten free version if you are making this recipe gluten free.
Optional: shrimp (pre-cooked), avocado, fresh baby greens (arugula, mustard greens, etc.)
Note: a bag of pre-packaged coleslaw saved me some prep time for the carrots and cabbage in the recipe.
Directions: toss all ingredients together except wrappers. Submerge spring roll wrappers, one at a time, in hot water until pliable-about 15 seconds. Place 2T of mix on each wrapper and wrap. Serve with dipping sauce.
