Healthy Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce




Healthy Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce are a perfect treat to yourself at home. Filled with fresh veggies and shrimp that create a flavorful healthy combo for lunch or dinner. It is an easy 30 minute recipe to make at home. These spring rolls are so delicious that you will want to prepare them again and again. Make it with me!




These spring rolls are so fun to make at home! They take a little practice to get the wrapping just right, but it's worth it. You can buy rice paper wraps at the asian market, or at some local grocery stores. I found mine at Winco. 




These spring rolls are filled with healthy ingredients! Shrimps are rich in proteins, iodine, and calcium. It is also high in Omega-3s Fatty Acids. Shrimps are a source of good protein as opposed to red meat. These spring rolls are filled with raw vegetables like carrot, cucumber, lettuce etc. and these are high in vitamin A and other micronutrients


I am a huge peanut fan, so this peanut dipping sauce is one of my favs! It's sweet from the peanut butter, and it has a little kick from the chili garlic paste. I think you'll like it!

Calories 275 kcal

Ingredients

SPRING ROLLS
12 large shrimps, deveined
1 cucumber julienned
4 small carrots julienned
1 small head iceberg lettuce, chopped

DIPPING
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1-2 tbsp soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili garlic paste
1 tsp cornstarch

Combine all ingredients listed under 'DIPPING' into a small saucepan. Cook the mixture on medium heat for about 3-5 min or until sauce thickens.

Take very warm water in a large skillet or large plate. Dip rice paper wrap in the water for 10-15 sec and then spread it carefully on a slightly wet cutting board.

Now put lettuce, 2-3 carrot juliennes, 2-3 cucumber juliennes, some cilantro leaves, on one side of the wet wrap. Also layer 3 shrimp ahead of veggies leaving some gap in between. Gently fold the rice paper wrap over the veggie side once. Then tuck in the side edges of the wrap and continue to fold over the shrimp and roll until seam is sealed. Repeat this step for each roll.
Enjoy these fresh healthy spring rolls with prepared peanut butter dipping.


**Recipe Notes
These rolls don't have to be made with shrimp! You can also use chicken, or tofu.
Sprinkle some water over the cutting board or flat surface before putting wet rice paper wrap.
It may take some practice initially to roll these wraps.

Asian Ramen Salad with Peanut Dressing




This ridiculously amazing Asian Ramen Salad with Peanut Dressing will have you and your guests going back for thirds and fourths. Everyone will be asking for the recipe and you’ll want to bring this easy dish to everything! It's super easy to throw together and the peanut dressing is delicious!! Make it with me!




Ramen Salad? You are probably wondering what type of ramen we are using in this recipe. Your initial thought is probably correct, good old classic ramen noodles. Think freshman year survival food, and that's that ramen we are using! You can buy any flavor you have on hand, because we won't be adding the seasoning packet. We are adding the dry noodles to this salad for a delicious crunch.



Are the ramen noodles supposed to be crispy/uncooked? Yes. That’s the point. The crunchy ramen noodles give it texture and bite. They do get “soggy” after they have been sitting in the salad for awhile (since it soaks up the liquid). To avoid this, don’t add the ramen noodles until right before you serve if you want the crunchy texture.





You can use any type of "slaw" mix you prefer in this recipe. I like using broccoli slaw because it has a good texture and I like how it holds up when tossed in the dressing. Any slax mix will do! 




This recipe doesn't call for any chicken, but it would be delicious if you wanted to add it in! You could also add mandarin oranges to this if you wanted to add additional elements.




Asian Ramen Salad with Peanut Dressing 
Yields 8 servings

16 ounce bag broccoli slaw mix
1 cup honey roasted sunflower seeds
1 cup sliced almonds
2 green onions, sliced
2 3 ounce bags ramen, crushed (dry noodles, without seasoning packets)

Peanut Dressing
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon liquid aminos
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a mixing bowl, combine the slaw mix, sunflower seeds, almonds, and green onions.

To a blender, add all of the ingredients for the peanut dressing and blend until smooth. If the dressing is too thick, add an additional tablespoon of water, until sauce is think, but stir pourable.

Pour Peanut Dressing over salad mix and toss until evenly coated. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or until ready to serve. Then just before serving, fold in the ramen noodles.
