Fruit Spring Rolls

March 11, 2021

Fruit spring rolls are a wonderful way to brighten up any appetizer or dessert table – or even surprise your family with these as a side dish with dinner! They are fun, easy to hold, and a different way to eat your vitamins. You can switch up different fruits in the recipe, but be sure to use ones that aren’t too juicy or easily smashed (like raspberries), and keep in mind that you need some texture and crunch inside (like the apples).
2 Fruit Spring Rolls
Fill a cake pan halfway with hot (but not boiling) water. Place one rice paper wrapper in the water, pushing to submerge. Let sit for 20-30 seconds, until it starts to ripple. Use two hands to remove the wrapper from the water, let excess water drip off, then lay flat on a plate.
3 Fruit Spring Rolls
Place 3 or 4 mint leaves in a line down the center. Top with a layer of strawberries, then kiwis.
4 Fruit Spring RollsTop with a heaping layer of mango and apples, then a handful of blueberries. Tightly fold the top and bottom in, then fold the left side in.
5 Fruit Spring Rolls
Tightly roll to the right, until completely rolled up; press outside edge to seal. Cut in half. Repeat with remaining fruit and wrappers.
