Roast Beef Salad Rolls
- 12 (8 inch/ 20 cm) round rice paper wrappers
- 2 cups shredded lettuce
- 12 oz thinly sliced leftover roast beef, cut into strips
- 6 Tbsp prepared peanut satay sauce or hoisin sauce
- In a pie plate or shallow dish filled with warm water, soak one rice wrapper for about 20 seconds, or until it becomes pliable. Place on a flat work surface. Soak a second rice paper sheet and place it on top of the first sheet. (This creates a stronger wrapper that is sturdier for rolling.)
- Arrange some lettuce, carrot and roast beef on the bottom half of the wrapper. Drizzle with 1 tbsp (15 mL) sauce. Carefully and firmly roll up the paper to enclose filling and create a cylinder, tucking in the sides as you roll (like rolling a burrito). Try not to overfill, as this makes it difficult to roll up. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
- Serve with extra peanut sauce for dipping. Rolls are best eaten immediately, but you can cover the wrappers with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
- Follow your taste buds and add in other favorite flavours, such as Sriracha, cilantro, green onion, cucumber, sweet bell peppers or peanuts.
- Find rice paper wrappers in the international section of the grocery store.
