When it’s hot outside, you may crave something light, something refreshing, and something that tastes good for lunch. Summer rolls check all those boxes. All in the name, summer rolls are the ideal food for the hottest season. Not to be confused with fried spring rolls, summer rolls take healthy and savory ingredients and wrap them all up into rice paper. Pair that with a complimenting dipping sauce and you have the ideal summer lunch.

Give yourself plenty of work surface for this one because you’re going to need it for all those tasty recipes. What ingredients do you want? Bell peppers, carrots, avocado, fresh herbs, vermicelli rice noodles, bean sprouts, mangoes, strawberries, and kiwi. Grab the rice papers, it’s time to make summer rolls your way.
