Summer Rolls with Zesty Sauce

summer rolls

These summer rolls are fun to make and look very tempting. They are filled with a rainbow of fresh raw fruit and vegetables. You can use any fruit or veg that you have – the only ingredient I always add is avocado.

Some people avoid peanuts and the sauce can be made with any other nut or seed butter. I’ve made it with cashew butter, almond butter and raw sesame seed and all have turned out great. I think it’s best with almond butter. Using peanut butter in the photos and video just as it’s the most common.

  4. Place flat on a board and then add thin slices of fruit and vegetables on 1/3 of the paper at an edge.
  5. Roll the rice paper up by folding over the filling, tucking in the sides then rolling to the edge. See the video for a demo.
