1 red bell pepper, 5 green onions sliced lengthwise, 1 avocado, 6 – 8 rice paper spring roll wrappers
Sauce: Combine all “Sauce” ingredients in a small bowl.
Prepare: Thinly slice all veggies and arrange near your work space.
Roll: Fill a shallow dish with hot water. Working one at a time, gently place a rice paper in the hot water for about 15 seconds, or until soft and pliable.
