These Vietnamese Rice paper rolls will get your taste buds going. Traditionally in Vietnam, they are called goi cuon which means salad rolls and are often filled with vegetables, pork and shrimp. Nowadays, you can really put any combination of flavours you like to customize these salad rolls. Go crazy and try different ingredients.

You can make a dipping sauce by simply combining light soy sauce, sesame oil and a little peanut butter together. I like to eat them with a little soy sauce on the side.
