Cucumber and Avocado Summer Rolls with Mustard-Soy Sauce

Cucumber and Avocado Summer Rolls with Mustard-Soy Sauce

Rich, nutty avocado is a great carrier of flavors, like the fresh herbs and cooling cucumber that star in these fresh rice-paper rolls. The savory dipping sauce features tart, sweet and salty ingredients that mimic an exotic salad dressing—fitting, as these rolls are like a salad that is eaten out of hand. In a small bowl, stir together the lime juice, oil, vinegar, mustard, soy sauce and brown sugar until the sugar dissolves; set aside. Halve, pit and peel the avocados, and then cut them into 1/2-inch dice.
This is a fun and tasty recipe to make. I used leftover roasted chicken breast tonight but you can also use ground pork or ground chicken. I have always been intimidated by cooking Asian food but I have finally gotten this recipe down. It’s fun to make and the kids have a lot of fun helping. My dipping sauce of choice is a sweet chili sauce but it’s too spicy for the kids so I make a soy dipping sauce too. I usually serve with an Asian Noodle Salad and fresh steamed broccoli.

Recipe: Cold Peanut Sesame Noodles | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn We've seen a few versions of this dish around the web lately. Most of them contain sesame oil for that distinct, toasted flavor. Not all of them, however, have peanut butter -- which is one ingredient we really love. Recipe: Cold Peanut Sesame Noodles | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn
