Warm July days call for light but filling meals that are easy to prepare; with little to no cooking. I love how easy it is to make spring rolls and the freedom to make it your own which they provide.
You have to soak the rice paper wraps in warm water for 15 – 30 seconds. Lift them out of the water gently so that they don’t rip.
Make sure that you don’t overfill them and you need to wrap them tightly.
Peanut sauce pairs nicely and is very simple to make. I use sweet chili sauce in mine. If this is something you do not enjoy, you can use sambal and a sweetner of your choice.

Julienne the peppers, cucumber and mango. Cut the avocado in half and slice it thinly.
Cook the noodles for one minute. Drain and rinse under cool water.
