“These Spring Rolls need to be served with either Vietnamese Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham) or a Hoisin-Peanut Dipping Sauce.”
10 rolls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put noodles in a large bowl and cover with just-boiling water. Let noodles sit until tender (5 to 8 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, cut cucumber and carrot into 4 inch lengths and then into matchsticks, using a mandolin or other hand-held slicer, to yield 1/2 cup matchsticks of each (or cut cucumber into matchsticks with a knife and coarsely shred carrots).
  3. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water. Spread noodles out on a baking sheet lined with a kitchen towel. Pat dry.
  4. Divide noodles into 2 long "logs," then cut with scissors to total 10 equal portions.
  5. Set out all ingredients near a work surface. Pour very hot tap water into a large shallow bowl such as a pie plate. Submerge 1 rice-paper wrapper until moistened and softened slightly but not completely pliable (it will continue to soften as you work with it).
  6. Lay wrapper on work surface and put 1/2 lettuce leaf in center. Mound 1 portion of noodles on lettuce followed by about one-tenth of the cucumber, carrot, and apple slices, 3 mint leaves, 4 cilantro leaves and a sprinkling of onions.
  7. Arrange ingredients into a rectangle about 4 inches long. Fold paper over short ends of filling, then roll up tightly from a long side. Repeat to make remaining rolls.
