Fresh fruit summer rolls with honey-lime dipping sauce
Rice paper wraps hold ripe fruit and mint in this recipe that transforms the spring roll into a fun dessert the whole family will get a kick out of! The roll will work with virtually any fruit – about 3 1/2 cups in total. Thinly slice softer fruits and cut crunchy fruit into long strips.You’ll need to work quickly once you start soaking rice papers, so arrange your filling ingredients in the order you’ll be grabbing them. Set a shallow bowl of warm water (a pie dish works perfectly) and the rice paper wrappers next to a cutting board. Have a plate with a damp towel nearby to hold completed rolls.
Fresh lime juice
Rice paper wrappers
Fresh mint leaves
1 cup(s), raw, thinly sliced
1 cup(s), very thinly sliced
1 cup(s), thinly sliced
1 medium, thinly sliced
- To make dipping sauce, combine lime juice and honey in a small airtight container; shake well.
- Set a shallow bowl of warm water next to a cutting board; have a plate with a damp towel nearby.
- Soak 1 rice paper wrapper in water until barely pliable but not limp, 30-40 seconds (the softer it gets, the more easily it will tear – you should still feel some of the paper’s texture); carefully slide it onto cutting board and lay flat (it will continue to soften as you work). Lay 1/8 of mint horizontally on lower third of wrapper, leaving about an inch on all sides; top with 1/8 of each fruit.
- Bring bottom edge of wrapper up and over, tucking carefully. Fold in sides; roll wrapper tightly. Transfer to plate and cover with damp towel; repeat with remaining ingredients to make 8 rolls. Serve rolls with dipping sauce.
- Serving size: 1 roll, 2 1/4 tsp sauce
