I had these at a baby shower last Spring made by the daddy ! ! and they are scrumptious! I got the recipe and have been making them ever since. Don't know if it is his recipe or where it originated from.
I sometimes add cooked shrimp too.

How to Make Summer Rolls

Step-by-Step

  1. Whisk together the dipping sauce ingredients with 1/4 cup water. Set aside.

    Cook snap peas in boiling salted water for 2 mins. Drain and immediately plunge into ice cold water. It is a good idea to have this ready ahead of time.
    Peel carrot and cut into long thin strips. Wash green onions and trim to 3 inches long.
    Place the rice vermicelli in a bowl and pour boiling water to cover and let sit 3 mins. Drain and rinse with cold water.return to bowl and stin in lime juice, sesame seeds and s/p.
    Now there are 2 ways to soften rice wrappers.
    You can dip each one in warm water and dry off with a towel or you can lay each one on a clean work surface and wipe it with a clean wet towel making sure to do both sides and the edges.
    When soft place 4 mint leaves ina line down the centre. Top with 1/4 cup noodle mixture, placing it ina log shape leaving aboiut 1 inch on either side. Set 4 suagr snap peas on top of noodles. Place green onion on top of peas and 5 carrot strips.
    To close gently lify the top edge and roll it tightly over filling. Carefully fold in sides and roll tightly to seal.Repeat.. Chill till serving. So delicious!!
