Spring Rolls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

with peanut dipping sauce.......

It's already getting hot in Arizona, and I wanted to treat my hubby to something fresh and flavorful.   He loves spring rolls. This is my version, with a spicy peanut sauce.  Be patient rolling this, once you get the hang of it it is really easy. Enjoy!!!!!!!

Spring roll papers
rice noodles
veggies, I use carrots, bell peppers, basil, and green onion
crushed peanuts
imitation crab meat sticks, if you want variety, it looks pretty too!

For the sauce:
peanut butter about 2 tablespoons
hot sauce to taste
hoisin sauce about 4 tablespoons
garlic, 1 clove crushed
ginger about 1 teaspoon, fresh is best
water about 4 tablespoons,
Mix everything well until blended. 

Cook the rice noodles as per package  directions. Save the hot water to soak the rice papers.

Soak the rice papers one by one, you will soak the paper, make the roll, soak the next one, etc. Do not let go of the paper or you will loose it!
Place the soaked paper on a plate, arrange the ingredients and roll as in the pictures. I show shrimp , but also you can use imitation or real crab.  Do not overstuff, serve with the dipping sauce. Make many, they keep in the fridge well.
