20 mins
 
This is my standby spring roll that I eat year round, not just after Thanksgiving. I'll buy some nice deli carved turkey breast and make these rolls when the craving calls. For the dip, you can certainly be flexible and use peanut butter, almond butter or even cashew butter. The variety of nut flavors makes the dips really exciting when you want a change.
Here's the latest photo tutorial on on how to roll spring rolls.

Ingredients

For the turkey spring rolls

  • Fresh carved Turkey meat , torn in small this strips
  • 1 large ripe avocado , cut into small slices
  • 1 large carrot , thin julienne cuts ( like match sticks)
  • Strips of cucumber , red bell pepper, jicama (optional)
  • fresh basil , mint or other herbs
  • fresh lettuce , chopped or torn in small pieces
  • rice paper for rolling

For Hoisin Peanut dip:

  • 1/4 cup hoisin (each brand has a different thickness consistency. So add water if needed to make the dip texture to taste)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter , almond butter or cashew butter.
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Directions

  1. For the hoisin peanut dip: In medium bowl, combine all dip ingredients together (hoisin, peanut butter, rice vinegar, and sesame oil). Use a fork to help blend well.
  2. For the rolls, gather all the ingredients together and get your rolling surface ready. Here's the latest photo tutorial on how to roll spring rolls.

  3. Add warm water to a large bowl. Quickly dip each rice paper wrapper in warm water for a few seconds and lay on rolling surface such as a cutting board or plate (they will still be slightly stiff).
  4. On the 1/3 section of the rice paper wrapper closest to you, start layering your fillings. Lay your lettuce first on the soft spring roll wrapper, then add the rest of your desired fillings.

  5. Start rolling the wrapper over the fillings away from you, tucking and rolling the wrapper with your fingers, making sure all the fillings remain tight and round within the rice paper wrapper. Serve with hoisin dip or other dip of choice.
