Rainbow Salad Rolls

There's nothing mind-altering about these salad rolls, but the rainbow of color gives these rolls a fabulous, psychedelic color palette that's as fun as it is delicious. The trick is to get vegetables are saturated in color as possible--so think bright purples, verdant greens, hot pinks, intense yellows. The vibrant ingredients will add a big impact to the finished salad rolls.

Salad Rolls:

2 ounces rice vermicelli

Eight (8 1/2-inch) rice paper wrappers (see Cook's Note)

1 small head red cabbage, cored and shredded

5 large carrots, grated or peeled into ribbons

1 to 2 avocados, thinly sliced

1 candy cane beet, thinly sliced

1 watermelon radish, thinly sliced

Cilantro sprigs

Basil leaves

Mint leaves

Lime-Soy Dipping Sauce:

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 garlic clove, minced or pressed

1 green chile, sliced


  1. Make the salad rolls: Cook the rice vermicelli according to the package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain well and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, fill a large bowl with hot water. Working with 1 sheet of rice paper at a time (keep the others covered with a barely damp cloth to prevent curling), dip the paper in the hot water until slightly softened and pliable (about 20 seconds). Remove and spread out on a clean work surface.
  3. Arrange some of the vegetables and vermicelli in the center. Roll up like a burrito. Place the roll on a plate covered with a damp towel as you prepare the remaining rolls.
  4. Make the dipping sauce: Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  5. Dip the rolls generously in the dipping sauce and enjoy!
