Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Summer rolls are a weeknight staple here at Eliot’s HQ. Especially when the temperatures get warm and no one feels like cooking! Use what salad ingredients you have on hand, wrap in rice paper and mix up a quick peanut sauce. Then kick up your feet, sip a cold drink and enjoy this delicious, simple and healthy meal.

  • 1 package rice paper wrappers
