Rice paper rolls with chicken and salad veggies

For a light lunch these rolls are perfect, and can be made up to one day ahead.

Ingredients:

Rice paper rolls
• 8 rice paper sheets (available from Asian supermarkets)
• 1 cup cooked chicken
• 1 avocado, thinly sliced
• 1 carrot, finely chopped into matchsticks (or grated)
• 1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts
• 1/2 cup purple cabbage, finely sliced
• 1 stick celery, finely sliced into lengths

Dipping sauce
• Juice of ½ a lime
• 2 tbsp honey
• 2 tbsp soy sauce
• 1/4 tsp chilli sauce or chilli flakes

Method:

Mix the dipping sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set aside in the fridge.

Prepare a bowl of hot water and have the rest of the ingredients laid out ready to go.

Dip one rice paper round into the water for 20-30 seconds (or follow the directions on the pack to determine how long to wet it for).

Lay the sheet out on a chopping board and fill the centre with the fresh ingredients. Don’t overfill or they will be difficult to roll.

Fold up like a parcel (again, check pack instructions) and set aside while you make the rest of the rolls.Serve the rolls with the dipping sauce.

Makes: 8 rolls
