My sallad in the form of vietnamese spring rolls
I have been eating a lot of sallad lately and tonight I was going to eat sallad again. However I wanted a variation and therefore I made vietnamese spring rolls. I just made the sallad from ingredients I had in the refrigerator. You can really put anything you love and like in the filling.
Chinese broccoli chopped
Green beans chopped
Sliced water chestnuts
Spring onions chopped
Red pepper chopped
I woked the sallad in a little oil in the wokpan and added a little salt and pepper.
After woking the sallad I took vietnamese rice paper, brushed it with water and put a spoonful of the sallad on, rolled the ricepaper around and made the springrolls. These thin ricepapers don´t need to be fried. They can be eaten just by dipping in the sauce of your choice. You can use sweat and sour sauce for dipping or make the dipping sauce below, or they can be eaten just as they are without dipping. It is a nice variation for a sallad.
