June’s Veggie Supper Club in Eugene was an “Amazing Appetizers and Fantastic Fingerfoods” theme; so I decided to try something new for me and something that would incorporate the great strawberries from market and raspberries from our backyard… so, Strawberry Cornbread Muffins and Fresh Fruit Spring Rolls were on the menu for today…

Fresh Fruit Spring Rolls
with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Makes as many rolls as you want

Spring Roll Ingredients:

  • Fresh fruit.  I used strawberries, pineapple (with their juice), bananas, raspberries.
  • Small rice paper spring roll wrappers
  • Fresh mint

Spring Roll Directions:

  1. Cut into small pieces and mix fruit & mint together.
  2. Using warm water (not too hot to the touch), dip stiff rice paper wrapper for 15-30 seconds until pliable.
  3. Place spoonful of fruit mixture in center of wrapper (amount dependent on rice paper size).  Don’t overfill, as you’ll get a hull breach.  Try to get as little of the juice in as possible, as this will make rolling it difficult.
  4. Wrap like a burrito… can be tricky.
  5. Repeat.

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:

Dipping Sauce Directions:

  1. Mix.
  2. Dip.
  3. Enjoy.
