On pages 88-91 of the July 2012 issue showcases our new and favorite spring roll (summer rolls) recipes. Our Sunset Magazine food editor helped us narrow down some of our favorite recipes to share. We discussed spring roll ideas that were fresh, flavorful, interesting and exciting. It was so much fun to create some new recipes and dips for you all.

Here’s the DIY Roll Your Own Summer Roll recipes  you can find in the July 2012 issue:

  • Turkey Bacon and Avocado Summer Rolls
  • Tofu, shitake and spinach Summer Rolls
  • Crunchy Cucumber Summe Rolls
  • Two dips: Almond Hoisin Sauce and Citrus Soy Dip

These Fresh Summer Rolls are perfect for your picnics and gatherings. Best of all, with some simple prepping and planning, you can have your very own DIY rolling party! We love having these summer rolling parties where everyone gets to make their own.
