Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce

This is one of those recipes that looks complicated, but nothing could be further from the truth. If you can peel and chop, you are in! These are great with Asian food, served at a party as an appetizer, or if you want a vegetarian lunch. Low-cal but with a satisfying crunch and a sweet and sour taste.

Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce Notes:

• To julienne the vegetables simply means to cut them into long thin strips, so they look like a matchstick.

• Rice paper wrappers can be found in the Asian food section of your grocery store, or at Asian food markets.

• When peeling your mango, you may want to do it with a knife instead of pulling the skin off. The knife will be smoother, and the pulling can result in strings of mango. However, if you like springs of mango, go for it!

Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce Directions:

1. Wash all the vegetables.
2. Peel five small carrots and roughly julienne them.
3. Shred cabbage to make one cup.
4. Julienne ½ of an English cucumber into the same size as the carrots.
5. Cut one mango in half, avoiding the pit. Peel off skin (I find it easier to use a knife rather than to pull it off, as pulling it causes it to be stringy.) Cut into strips, about the size of carrots and cucumber.
6. Cut 10 chives in half, or thirds, depending on size, to maintain similar size to all other cut vegetables.
