Ingredients

For the Spring Rolls:

  • 8 large round rice paper wraps
  • 1 cup approximately water
  • 1 carrot sliced into julienne strips
  • 1/2 large English cucumber sliced into julienne strips
  • 24-32 medium cooked shrimp patted dry with paper toweling
  • 2 cups fresh organic salad greens

For the Sriracha Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha

Instructions

To Make the Sauce:

  • Combine the mayonnaise and the Sriracha in a small bowl and set it aside in the refrigerator while you prepare the spring rolls.

To Assemble the Spring Rolls:

  • Lay out a clean kitchen towel on top of your work space.
  • Place some of the water on a large dinner plate and get ready to soak the sheets of rice paper. It's helpful to do this one at a time because they tend to stick to each other and make a huge mess.  Soak the first sheet just until it's softened and you're able to bend it easily. Don't over-soak! This makes the rice paper sheets turn to mush and your spring rolls will fall apart.
  • Spread the soaked rice paper sheet onto the clean kitchen towel and place 3-4 shrimp in a line in the centre. Add a small amount of the julienne cucumber and carrot, and a small handful of the greens. Fold one end over the ingredients, fold in the sides, and roll it up like a burrito.
  • Repeat this process until you've rolled all 8 spring rolls, making sure that you take the time to soak the rice paper wraps one at a time.
  • Slice them in half to serve if you wish, and be sure to serve them with some of that yummy Sriracha mayonnaise for dipping, or a sweet chili dipping sauce if you'd prefer that.
