Salad Sunday...from Europe

Ok so technically I'm in Amsterdam today, but I wanted to share these delicious cold rolls as part of my regularly scheduled blogging.  

What You'll Need
    julienned carrots, cucumbers, red peppers
    snap peas
Rice noodles
Rice paper wrappers

Firstly you should make this peanut dipping sauce.  Why?  Because who wants to eat veggies wrapped up in a rice paper?  Well, maybe a few of you, but not this girl.  I literally make the cold rolls so I can enjoy this delicious peanut sauce!  Do it!  Then, boil your noodles.  It should take all of 5 minutes.

Then chop up the veggies.  
Then you're ready to put them all together.  

Get a pie plate and fill with hot tap water.  Quickly soak the rice paper wrapper for 5-10 seconds and lay it out on a large plate.  Fill with the delicious fillings and wrap like a burrito.

To do this, fold one end toward the middle. 

Then starting on the left side of the folded bottom, pull the left edge over the fillings and tuck underneath.  

Then roll to close.  
This will keep the bottom closed and everything in tight!

So when it's too hot to cook, I highly recommend giving these a try!
