To serve, cut rolls crosswise in 1/2; stand pieces upright. Dip in Ginger Lime Dipping Sauce.


Roll ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts, without bone and skin
  • 8 medium scallions, raw
  • 4 ounces Asian rice stick noodles
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, large
  • 2 cups raw carrot, chopped
  • 2 cup Napa cabbage
  • 1/2 cup basil, raw
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, raw
  • Rice paper -Serving is one sheet, 12 serving

Ginger lime sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 teaspoons Splenda brown sugar blend
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root
  • 1 teaspoons Asian chili paste
  • 2 tablespoons basil, raw and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, raw and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint
  • 3 tablespoons Bell Plantation PB2



    Place rice noodles in a large pot of boiling water, stir. Cook until noodles are al dente, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Drain and rinse noodles.
    Cut chicken into small pieces. Place in a non-reactive salad bowl with noodles, green onions; carrots, cabbage red pepper, basil and cilantro. Toss to combine.

    Fill a large pan or bowl with hot tap water. Dip 1 rice paper wrapper into water, lift out, and drain briefly. Set on a flat surface.
    Place 1/2 cup filling in the center of each wrapper. To roll salad rolls, think of diapering a baby the old fashioned way - with cloth diapers minus the diaper pins! Pressing down on filling, fold the bottom of each wrapper over filling, then fold in sides; roll tightly. Press edges to seal; if rice paper is too dry to form a proper seal, moisten unsealed edges with a little water. Set rolls on a platter and cover with a damp towel.

    For dipping sauce, whisk together all ingredients in small non-reactive bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings.
