I’ve been trying to bring food to work pretty regularly because it’s so much nicer to warm up a good bowl of lentil soup than buy a sad, cafeteria sandwich. Has anyone ever had a wonderful cafeteria sandwich? I would like to know. I never have. Why must the lettuce always be so bleak at cafeterias?

I typically prefer a warm lunch, but since it’s warming up I’m getting behind the cooler food again. That being said, I really do prefer these rolls at room temperature, so let them warm up a bit if you do keep them in the refrigerator.

Prep Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado, sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 large cucumber, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 mangos, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce
  • 8 to 10 rice paper wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Wash and cut the fruit and vegetables.
  2. In a dish large enough to fit the rice paper wrappers (I use a pie plate), add 2 inches of warm water.
  3. Submerge the rice paper for 10 to 20 seconds, or until it is pliable. Lay it flat on a cutting board and add a few slices of mango, avocado, and cucumbers on one end. Sprinkle about a tablespoon of cilantro and lettuce on top of the fruit.
  4. Fold the end of the rice paper wrapper up over the fruit and veggies. Then fold the sides in and roll like a burrito.
  5. Cut in half, at an angle. Repeat with all 8 to 10 wrappers.
  6. For the sauce, combine the peanut butter, lime juice, sesame oil, salt, and pepper and whisk briskly to combine.
  7. Serve immediately or save in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Thanks for the delicious recipe! How do you keep them from sticking to each other or to anything you set them on?

Hi Linda, This is a great question! They are quite sticky when they're first made, so try spreading them out on a plate or cutting board as you're making them. If you save some in the fridge, you can keep them closer together.

I found Daring Greatly both challenging and encouraging.

Your food recipes are so fresh and lovely. AND I think I'll have to make your Shirley Temples with my kiddos and share my happy memories of sharing them with you!
