Vietnamese spring rolls always make great light-dinner fare, but the assembly can be time-consuming. Here's our solution: Set out the ingredients and let guests make their own. They'll have fun playing with their food, and the cook won't get stuck with all the prep work.
4 ounces thin rice noodles
1 head butter lettuce, broken into leaves
3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
2 papayas, peeled, seeded, and thinly sliced
About 1 cup fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup purchased spicy peanut sauce
1/2 cup chopped roasted salted peanuts
3 green onions, sliced into thin strips
12 large sheets rice paper*
How to Make It
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain.
Arrange noodles and remaining ingredients on large platters and set out with a large bowl of boiling water so diners can dip their rice papers (about 1 minute to soften), then assemble their spring rolls.

One of the best, fun, entertaining recipes I've ever found. Delicious and a great way to use delicious Papaya's. What a taste treat to behold! Great for a dinner party of four. I bought a ready cooked chicken, shredded and froze until needed. A nice dessert such as a lemon curd, berry tart or individual baked Alaska's is all that's needed for a complete meal. Of course, a nice chardonnay is a great addition.
