Look no further for restaurant-quality Spring Rolls that are unbelievably easy to make, delicious and healthy! I like to serve them with homemade peanut sauce for dipping and they make a great light lunch, dinner or appetizer.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m completely obsessed with Vietnamese and Thai food recipes, and I’ve loved trying to recreate some of my restaurant favorites in my own kitchen, including Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Pho soup and Panang curry.

My love for spring rolls goes back decades when a neighbor taught my mom and me her authentic tricks for making fresh spring rolls . These are packed with flavorful and taste better than anything I’ve ever found from a Thai Restaurant in the United States.
We’ve made them regularly and I think i’ve perfected our method and tips and I’m excited to share them with you!
What I love about this recipe:
Healthy and flavorful.
Adaptable: this recipe is extremely forgiving, and easy to adapt to use ingredients that you like and have on hand. I’m sharing what I typically put in them, but the options are endless, including bean sprouts, chicken, lettuce, bell peppers avocado.
The dipping sauce: a simple peanut sweet chili sauce that puts them over the top!
How to make Fresh Spring Rolls:
Assemble all of your ingredients together, including the chopped veggies, cooked chicken or shrimp, noodles, herbs, and rice paper wrappers. Chop all of your vegetables into long, thin slices. I like to shred the carrot, but you can cut it julienne if you’d like.
