Winter Rolls with Raw Sweet Chilli Dip

Think of summer rolls but with autumnal produce and a spicy dip. A rainbow of winter fruit and vegetables with a fresh zesty sauce with plenty of fire from chilli, ginger and garlic.

These are easy to make and are a great starter or party food. You can use any vegetables that you have about, just try to get a rainbow of colours. The crunchy raw veggies and fruit are loaded with vitamins and minerals but this dish is very low calorie so only suitable for a snack or starter. In the winter I like to have something like this in place of a salad as when its cold eating raw veggie can be unappealing, but this dish is very tempting in cold weather.
