Ingredient Notes: 

Rice Paper Wraps: Rice paper is delicate and usually comes dried. It can become flexible to use once submerged in water. You can usually find these for cheap in the international food aisle of your grocery store. 

Peanut Sauce: I have an easy recipe to make your own peanut sauce here. These are also great with a Thai chili sauce you can usually find pre-made in the international food aisle at your local store.

How to make rice paper rolls: 

1. Set all prepared ingredients onto a large plate. 

2. Finely slice the cucumber lengthwise and slice again into thin strips. 

3. Cut the green onion into 3-inch long pieces, and thinly slice length-wise. 

4. Prepare and thinly slice the bell pepper, avocado, and mango into strips. 

5. Cook your vermicelli noodles until soft. Strain, and rinse with cold water. Set aside in a bowl with cold water. 

6. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

7. To assemble the salad rolls, fill a wide + shallow bowl or dish with warm water. Set one sheet of rice paper on top of the water. After 15 – 20 seconds, gently press it down to submerge it into the water completely.  Once the rice paper feels pliable, carefully lay it flat on the counter or a large cutting board.
