It's Spring and I was in the mood for Spring Rolls.  Thank goodness my hubby is patient, because as usual I gave him little notice and asked him kindly to stop and pick of 2 avocados on his way home from work.
Juice from 1/2 lime
2 tbl canola oil
1 tbs rice vinegar
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
2 Avocados (cut into 1/2 inch cubes)
4 rice paper rounds (6 or 8 inches)
5 green lettuce leaves
fresh basil
fresh mint
2 carrots (cut into thin strips)
1/2 English cucumber (cut into thin strips)

In a small bowl combine lime juice, oil, vinegar, mustard, soy sauce and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved; set aside

You will need to soften the rice paper rounds, run under warm water in a circular motion, then place on a clean kitchen towel to dry.  If you would like, you can double your rice paper or just use one.

Once you are done with that, then take the lettuce leaf and center it on top of the rice paper.  From there add your veggies, while being careful not to over stuff the roll.
Once you have made your rolls, cut them  in half and enjoy.

These are filling and healthy and fun to eat.  I enjoyed mine with a glass of Pinot Grigio and of course water with lemon.  You can create these rolls many different ways.  I happen to have modified this from another.
