School holidays have officially started, the sun is shining, and Rice Paper Rolls (aka summer rolls) are a favorite way to use all the farm-fresh produce that is available, especially with all the bounty of my CSA farmshare! Fun to eat, and so refreshing, these fresh veggie rolls are always better with a good dipping sauce. I like a Thai-inspired peanut sauce for a good balance of protein, texture and flavor. Carefully Crafted Dressing & Spread added the right amount of creaminess and tanginess to balance the sweet, salty, spicy, and peanutty flavors. Can I just note that since making my kimchi mock-tuna salad with feedfeed and Hellmann's, I've had to keep my family from devouring the entire jar! Luckily there was just enough for me to make this. ;)
