Asian Slaw Spring Roll
with Spicy Soy Dipping Sauce
makes 2 rolls
INGREDIENTS 2 - 8” rice paper wrappers
1/2 cup Brussel Sprouts Asian Slaw
Place a clean kitchen towel on the countertop and fill a large bowl with lukewarm water. Take one of the rice paper wrappers and dip it quickly into the water. Allow any excess water to drip off, so that it is just barely damp, then lay it down on the towel.
Working with one roll at a time, arrange 2-3 leaves of the cilantro from left to right in the center of the wrapper, then place about ½ cup of the slaw on top of the cilantro. Grasp the bottom edge of the wrapper and pull up over the top of the filling, then pull the top edge of the wrapper down over the filling toward the bottom edge. Pull the left and then the right sides of the wrapper over the ends toward the center firmly, so that you now have a straight edge on each side. Continue to roll the wrapper firmly, like a cigar; if the wrapper starts to dry out or crack, dip your fingers in water and use them to re-moisten the edges of the wrapper, making sure that the wrapper is completely sealed. Repeat with the next wrapper.
Serve with Spicy Soy Dipping Sauce
