Servings 10 rolls

Whether it's for a picnic or for a potluck, spring rolls are always a crowd pleaser. Fresh and light, we crave a spring roll that's filled with crunchy veggies, fresh fruit, and springy rice vermicelli. And there's no better way to serve it than with a spicy, creamy dipping sauce, like this spicy cashew version. You can serve this spring rolls whole, or cut into 3 or 4 pieces so that your little ones can grab a piece or two as a snack. For a few different takes on this classic recipe, try our spring rolls with quinoa or with soba noodles and an almond butter-miso sauce.
