Servings 10 rolls

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces uncooked vermicelli noodles
  • 1 large carrot ribboned
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cucumber thinly sliced
  • Handful chives
  • 1/2 cup (packed) mint chopped
  • 1/2 cup (packed) basil torn
  • 1/2 butter leaf lettuce
  • 2 cups cooked chicken (shredded into smaller pieces)
  • 1 pack rice paper (I used the 8.5" size)

Dipping sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon tarragon finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons mayo
  • 4 teaspoons miso paste (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Cook the vermicelli according to package directions. Rinse it with cool water and place it in a bowl when it's ready. Ribbon the carrot (I used my potato peeler to do this) or cut it into matchsticks. Slice the avocado and cucumber, and prepare the herbs and lettuce.
  • Fill a large bowl full of cool water. Wet a piece of rice paper and then place it on the surface you'll be assembling the rolls on.
  • Add the vermicelli, vegetables, and chicken to the top third of the rice paper. Fold the sides over slightly and then fold the top over so it just touches the filling. Tuck in the filling with your hands as you roll it towards you. Keep in mind you want the rolls to be fairly firm, but if you roll them too tightly, you'll break the paper.
  • Repeat the process for as many rolls as you have stuffing for. Serve the salad rolls with the miso dipping sauce. You can keep the rolls intact or cut them in half.

Notes

  • This recipe makes at least 10 rolls. It depends on how much you stuff the rolls. Quantities listed generously feed two adults as entrees, and many more as appetizers. Prep time also really depends on how fast you're able to assemble these rolls. If you've never made salad rolls before, I suggest dedicating at least two hours to this project.
