“I like these summer rolls as they are a great alternative to deep-fried egg rolls. They also make a great side for any Asian dish. I also like that they are easy to make and don't take much time. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, however next time I think I will put a little less fresh mint in the rolls. I just felt that the mint was too over powering, but besides that they taste great!!”
