Summer Rolls

Pin It

We cannot get enough make-ahead-and-serve-cold meals during the summer.  Alyssa from Everyday Maven must have known that when she picked this weeks the food matters project recipe - summer rolls.  These Thai-inspired rolls are easy and fun to put together as long as you have two specialty ingredients on hand (both of which can be found at any supermarket): cellophane noodles and rice paper.

With these two staples you can substitute in any variation of vegetables and herbs you like and have on hand.  This time we used carrots, zucchini, cucumbers, mint, and basil.  An easy to make peanut sauce serves as the perfect compliment to this refreshing and healthy side dish, snack, appetizer, or side dish (we had ours with a simple stir fry).
