Avocado-Mango Spring Rolls

BY : PUBLISHED : April 5th, 2013 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

When the weather starts heating up, we like to serve fresh spring rolls. They’re quick, easy and the only cooking required is water heated in a tea kettle.

Spring rolls aren’t an exact science. Add herbs, substitute vegetables or fruits, make them the way you want to eat them. I sometimes add chopped peanuts for a nice crunch.

If you’ve never worked with rice paper, it may seem a bit tricky at first. Try and try again! Ugly spring rolls still taste delicious.
