FRESH SUMMER ROLLS WITH AMAZING THREE DIPPING SAUCES

May 22, 2020

Fresh summer rolls are colorful, healthy and fun to make with any kind of ingredients which are easy to find or you already have at home. Served with delicious and creamy peanut butter or sweet chilli dipping sauce, these summer rolls are great for lunch, dinner or just as a snack in-between.

The rice paper rolls are gluten-free, vegan, and perfect for plant-based foodies. I tried making them for the first time, and it was pretty easy. I already had lot of veggies, noodles, and fruits at home, so I thought I will give it a try, but the secret to deliciousness are the dips.

For this recipe post I created thee amazing dips: sweet papaya chilli, peanut dipping sauce, and avocado mint sauce. This time I made vegan rolls, but you can for sure add meat, such as salmon, tuna, mini shrimps or chicken. They are quick to prepare and easy to customize for everyone’s taste!
