Chinese Salad Spring Rolls

Ok, so I have a thing for salad. Wrap it up spring-roll style like this and I’m probably going to have more salad than if I had to “fork” it. That is because, it gives me a free hand to multi-task with out much delay. That sadly, is how a lot of lunches are consumed. But this is an improvement, especially since I use to skip lunches altogether.

Nowadays, I do stuff like this Chinese salad spring roll—fast, easy and somewhat healthy. I make them the night before and grab one when I’m hungry.

I’m making an effort to eat better (and just plain eat). Admittedly, most days, I end up only having breakfast then snacking on nuts or fruit for dinner. It’s not a diet thing—more a bad habit of working obsessively until I finish what’s at hand before I take a break.

So these spring rolls, even if I’m eating with one hand and working with the other is, is a step in the right direction.

Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Mirin or sweet rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes

Salad

  • 1/2 pound Napa cabbage, cut into 1-inch pieces (3 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 pound snow peas, cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 seedless cucumber (usually plastic-wrapped), quartered lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Assembly

  • 8-10  rice paper
  • 1 butter leaf lettuce head or 2 radacchio heads, thick stems removed and cut in half

Directions:

Combine and whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients. In a large bowl, toss all salad ingredients with vinaigrette.

Assembly: Fill a shallow pie pan with warm water. Working with 1 sheet of rice paper at a time, submerge it in the water and quickly transfer it to a dry towel. Rice paper will become pliable within seconds. Place a piece of lettuce on top of the rice paper. Layer with 2-3 tablespoons of salad on top. Roll the paper halfway. Fold both sides of the paper over the filling. Keep rolling to seal.

    That was a nice write-up. I am just imagining how SEO is becoming pretty difficult this days, but some people claim they can achieve results for a ridiculously small amounts.
