More Happy Salad Rolls!!
I love Thai Salad Rolls so much that I wake up thinking about them: all those fresh veggies, the spicy peanut sauce, the cool nomminess of them.
I got up at 5 a.m. the other morning and remembered I had half a pack of salad roll wraps in the fridge, so I got to work. I used this recipe but changed up the filling ingredients. I used red cabbage and lots more carrots than called for, and reduced the rice noodle content by about half, added a huge handful of cilantro, and omitted the peanuts.
This makes them even more nutritious and quite a bit lower in carbs.
I have to say though: my salad rolls are too floppy and loosely packed. I struggle with getting them firmer like the nice ones in Thai restaurants; if there's a trick, I don't know it. I suspect it takes practice. So I'll keep at it. This is a perfect summer bento item...
