I had my first spring roll almost 10 years ago and still love the crunch of fresh vegetables and herbs paired with a peanut dipping sauce.

This is a fun dish to serve when having a couple of friends over for dinner. There’s very little cooking (none if you buy pre-cooked shrimp). Just some fancy chopping and stirring up a bit of sauce. If you happen to have vegetarian or vegan friends, add a couple more vegetables, like bean sprouts and red cabbage, and they can make their spring rolls without any shrimp.

    Big spring roll fan here! I’ve even made the sauce with ‘The Heat is On’ spicy peanut butter. That’ll knock your socks off, but it’s delicious if you like spicy.

    Thank you so much for the Peanut Butter Sauce recipe! The usual minor adjustments were made to fit my pantry availability at the moment, but no serious deviations were made. The result – absolutely amazing – the sounds of enjoyment from the test subjects were audible and agreeable. This one’s getting copied down to paper for frequent and continued use into the unforeseen future. Thanks again!
