Spring into Spring with this Incredible Spring Roll

WOW! These turned out amazing. Refreshing.

Spring Roll

3 chicken breast ( I grilled) julienned

1/2 cp. carrots julienned

1/2 cp. cucumber julienned
1/2 cp rice vermicelli
4-10 rice sheets. It depends on the size of the spring roll.
1/4 cp fresh cilantro
1/2 cp shredded lettuce
2 TB fresh mint
(I only use fresh herbs)
1. After all the prep. (following directions on rice vermicelli, cutting vegs and herbs, and cutting chicken) then you dip the rice paper into water. Let soak 5 sec and remove. Put on a plate add a little of each ingredient and roll. (To roll: I recommend this site )
That is it! Super simple, but a lot of prep work. I loved this. I made a few extra for my hubby and I for a snack tomorrow. This is so healthy and yummy.

HINT: I cheated and threw the veggies in the shredder of my food processor. But it was quick and still tasted GREAT.

The dipping Sauce:

4 TB soy sauce
4 TB rice wine vinegar
2 tsp. fish sauce
2 tsp. sesame oil
4 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. hot sauce
2 TB cilantro

1. Whisk everything together for the sauce.
