  • Portion size 24 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 oz rice stick vermicelli
  • 1/2 English cucumber peeled, halved and cored
  • 1 red pepper halved and seeded
  • 1 carrots peeled
  • 1 mango peeled and pitted
  • 12 rice paper wrappers about 6 inches/15 cm
  • 12 mint
  • 12 basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped roasted peanuts
Dipping sauce:
  • 1/2 cup sweet Thai chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons water

Method

Dipping sauce: In small bowl, stir together chili sauce, lime juice, vinegar and water; set aside.

In bowl, soak rice vermicelli in hot water until tender, about 10 minutes; drain. Toss with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the dipping sauce.

Cut cucumber, red pepper, carrot and mango into 3- x 1/8-inch (8 cm x 3 mm) strips. Set aside.

Fill shallow pan with lukewarm water. Soak rice paper wrappers, 1 at a time, in water until soft and pliable, about 1 minute. Transfer to tea towel and pat dry.

Along bottom edge of wrapper and leaving 1 inch (2.5 cm) on each side, place 1 mint leaf, 1 tsp (5 mL) of the peanuts, 4 pieces each cucumber, red pepper, carrot and mango, and about 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the vermicelli noodles. Fold sides over and tightly roll up. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 12 rolls. (Make-ahead: Place, seam side down, on plastic wrap–lined plate or baking sheet. Cover with damp towel and overwrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 8 hours.)

Cut crosswise in half. Serve with dipping sauce.
