Diet-Friendly Summer Rolls

Here’s a diet-friendly lunch.

It’s a sort of salad-wrap, Vietnamese style.
And we call it a Summer Roll; packed with veggies and served with Hoisin Peanut sauce.

Summer Rolls
Rice Noodles

1 T lime juice

Hot sauce

Rice paper rounds

Romaine lettuce leaves

4 Carrots, peeled and shredded

1 Cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into strips



Hoisin Sauce (recipe follows)

To prepare rice noodles, place them in a bowl and pour boiling water over them. Soak for

10 min, and thoroughly drain. Cut noodles with kitchen scissors in a few places to make

them easier to work with when wrapping the rolls. Toss noodles in lime juice and a dash

of hot sauce.

Place warm water in a shallow dish big enough to hold one of the rice rounds. Put one

round in the water and let sit for about ten seconds to soften. Remove round and place on

work surface. Place lettuce leaf in center of round. Add shredded carrots, sliced

cucumbers, cilantro,and peanuts on leaf. Squeeze some sauce on the veg, and roll tightly like a burrito.
