Summer Solstice Rolls
These simple summer solstice rolls make a perfect cool meal on a warm summer night. This recipe is extremely versatile, so feel free to use any fresh, colorful summer veggies you happen to have on hand. Our weekly sale from June 21st – 27th features a handful of the ingredients listed, making this one easy on the budget, too! If you don’t plan to serve the rolls right away, try rolling them in plastic wrap until you’re ready to eat. This will prevent the rolls from becoming soggy or sticking together.
Prepare all of the vegetables by chopping them into long, thin matchsticks. Whisk together a dressing with the rice vinegar, sugar, and sesame oil. Fill a shallow dish with warm water and submerge one of the spring roll wrappers in the warm water until softened but still slightly stiff, 5-10 seconds. Lay the softened wrapper on your work surface and lay a small pile of vegetables and a shrimp or two (if using) on top of the wrapper. Spoon a bit of the dressing onto the filling. Fold the sides of the wrapper over the filling, then roll it up, starting at the bottom. Repeat until you have 10-12 rolls. Slice each roll in half and serve with peanut dipping sauce.
