How to Make Fresh Spring Rolls with Dipping Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. To prepare sauce, combine first 7 ingredients, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves; set aside.

Place rice paper sheet on a flat surface. Arrange 1 lettuce piece in center of sheet.

Gently press seam to seal. Place spring roll, seam side down, on a serving platter (cover to prevent drying).
