Spring Rolls with Asian-Inspired Peanut Butter Sauce

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.
