Asian Summer Rolls
As the months get warmer we shed our heavier clothes and rejoice in the warmer weather and all it has to offer.
We also begin to shed some unwanted pounds put on by heavier meals consumed throughout the colder months.
This simple and elegant dish is full of flavour, easy on the budget, low in fat and has exploding  colour.
Fresh and full of crispy vegetables you can make this any way you'd like with whatever you have in your refrigerator.
It is portable and fast
The pliable outer shell is made with paper thin sheets of rice.
Instantly softening when dipped in warm water, they become see through, showing a variety of appetizing colours.
6 - 10 sheets rice paper wrappers
1 jalapeno, seeded and julienned
250 g white rice noodles, cooked, cooled
1/2 cup each of julienned: red or green peppers
                                           green mango
                                           green or red onion
                                           roasted chicken or
                                           snow peas
Open package of dry rice wrappers.
Working with 1 wrapper. Immerse under warm water, just to coat. 


  This weave pattern is sturdier than other types.
  Place on a large enough plate, platter or           cutting  board.
Place a variety of your vegetables, noodles and meats down the length, over to 1/3 of the circle.
Fold over one end then fold in the sides.
Continue Rolling until you have a tight package.
Continue filling and rolling remaining ingredients.
Dipping Sauce:
1/4 cup tamari sauce
7-8 drops of toasted sesame seed oil
1/2-1 tsp sriracha sauce
1/2 tsp pureed ginger
Mix all ingredients together.
Enjoy with love
