Savor sweet, juicy peaches this summer with Barbecue-Peach Summer Rolls appetizer.

How to Make It

Step 1

Pour hot water to depth of 1 inch into a large shallow dish. Dip 1 rice paper sheet in hot water briefly to soften (about 15 to 20 seconds). Pat dry with paper towels.

Step 2

Place softened rice paper on a flat surface. Place 1 or 2 peach slices in center of rice paper; top with 1 lettuce leaf, 2 cucumber strips, 1 avocado slice, about 3 Tbsp. pork, 3 or 4 apple strips, and 1 1/2 to 2 Tbsp. herbs. Fold sides over filling, and roll up, burrito style. Place roll, seam side down, on a serving platter. Cover with damp paper towels to keep from drying out.

Step 3

Repeat procedure with remaining rice paper and filling ingredients. Serve with Sweet Pepper-Peanut Sauce.

Chef's Notes

Total time includes the sauce.

Look for rice paper rounds in the international aisle of large grocery stores or at Asian markets.

rice paper rolls

August 11, 2015
these rolls are pretty, easy to make and excellent hot weather food.  they are meant to be eaten quickly - rice paper becomes hard if left in refrigerator, peaches become soft.  they are a blend of bitter and sweet, creamy and crunchy, meaty and vegetarian.  i found that i didn't need the sauce, the flavors are so well balanced.
