Spring Roll Party

I had my girlfriends over for dinner last week, and wanted a fun, interactive (key word: I didn’t want to have to do that much work) type of a meal.  My answer? Spring Rolls!

Shrimp VegetablesI simply prepped the veggies before work, made a couple dipping sauces and boiled the shrimp once they arrived… a simple tutorial on how to roll them and we were all set!

Mint Jalapeno Shrimp Spring Rolls

Spring Roll Veggies For veggies I did:

  • Carrot (use a veggie peeler for the ribbon effect)
  • Mango
  • Cucumber
  • Jalapeno
  • Red Leaf Lettuce
  • Mint/Basil

Shaved Carrots

Other additions/ideas:

  • Vermicelli (rice noodles)
  • Shrimp
  • Tofu
  • Marinated pork/steak

Rolling a Spring Roll

Soak spring roll wrappers in warm water for 30 seconds or so and then add your favorite toppings and roll burrito-style.

Making a Spring Roll

I also served a super yummy Thai Chicken Salad that I HIGHLY recommend… I used light coconut milk in the recipe and it was delicious!

We paired everything with a yummy Sauvignon Blanc… and we were all set for a wonderful meal together!
