They are perfect for a snack, appetizer, or even a light meal, and the dipping sauce adds an irresistible zing to every bite.

Ingredients:
For the spring rolls:
– 8 rice paper wrappers
– 1 cup cooked shrimp, sliced in half lengthwise
– 1 cup shredded lettuce or mixed greens
– 1 cup julienned carrots
– 1 cup julienned cucumber
– 1 cup fresh mint leaves
– 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
– 1/2 cup cooked vermicelli noodles (optional)

For the dipping sauce:
– 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
– 1 tablespoon peanut butter
– 1 tablespoon water
– 1 tablespoon lime juice
– 1 teaspoon sriracha (optional, for spice)

Instructions:
1. Prepare the Ingredients:
– Cook the shrimp and vermicelli noodles (if using) according to package instructions.
– Wash and julienne the vegetables. Tear the mint and cilantro leaves into manageable pieces.

2. Assemble the Rolls:
– Fill a large shallow bowl with warm water. One at a time, dip each rice paper wrapper into the water for about 5 seconds until it becomes pliable.
– Lay the softened wrapper flat on a clean surface.
– On the lower third of the wrapper, place a small amount of shredded lettuce or mixed greens.
– Layer a small amount of carrots, cucumber, and vermicelli noodles on top of the greens.
– Add a few leaves of mint and cilantro.
– Place 2-3 pieces of shrimp on top of the vegetables.

3. Roll the Wrapper:
– Fold the sides of the wrapper over the filling.
– Starting from the edge nearest to the filling, roll up tightly but carefully, as the wrappers are delicate. Continue rolling up to the top edge.
– Place the finished roll on a plate and cover with a damp cloth to keep it fresh. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

4. Make the Dipping Sauce:
– In a small bowl, mix together hoisin sauce, peanut butter, water, lime juice, and sriracha until smooth and well-combined.

5. Serve:
– Arrange the spring rolls on a platter with the dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy immediately.
