I love salad rolls. I LOVE salad rolls. REALLY really love them. If I could, I would eat about ten in one sitting, but that would at up at a restaurant! I thought about making them at home a few times, but the thought of working with the thin wrappers really intimidated me. I had a bad craving for them one day while at the grocery store, and decided to try my hand at them. I am so glad I did, because it is SO EASY. Really, you guys! Like "should I even post a 'recipe' for this" easy. Here's what I used to make them, but you can use any mixture of flavors you like! I think next time I will add some long strips of crunchy cucumber, too.
salad roll wrappers*
stir fry noodles*, cooked according to package directions and roughly chopped
avocado, thinly sliced
tofu, thinly sliced
carrots, thinly sliced
*you can find these in the Asian section of any grocery store, and they are super inexpensive! Also, if you make extra noodles, you can store them in the refrigerator in a container with water. This keeps the noodles from drying out and sticking to each other in a clumpy mess. Just drain them when you have the urge to make more salad rolls!
1. Get your ingredients all prepared and together. You have to work a bit fast with the wrappers, so it's best to have everything close by.
2. Immerse the dry wrapper into warm water until it softens up and becomes transluscent, about 10 seconds. Pat off excess water with a damp tea cloth.
3. Line up your fillings in the center of the wrapper, and fold! Fold the under side up, then the top portion, then roll up- like you would a burrito.
4. Eat them!
I'd like to try to make my own peanut sauce next time. I used some from Trader Joe's which was ok, but a little too soy flavored. Do you have a recipe you like to use for that?
