Vegan Vegetable Spring Rolls with Peanut Ginger Sauce

These last few days have been unseasonably warm…seriously March..what the heck?  One day, freezing, the next, windy, and now a whopping 80 degrees? For me as the California girl that I am…anything under 70 is much too cold and I am grabbing my scarf, and anything over 80 is scorching, and I need the AC on all day.  I guess this is why everyone goes to Hollywood for acting jobs…we are all so overly dramatic in Cali.  I know, I am such a wimp.  Well, today was a perfect spring day ( a bit warm for me, but that is because I am a major complainer.. it is what I do best), and I needed something refreshing.  No soups, hot dishes, warm drinks.  Just no.  I wanted a cold, fresh, something.  Ah-ha!  A fresh spring roll, with vegetables.  Not the fried ones.  That would defeat the purpose of my mission.  And definitely I needed something I could dip, well, because I dip everything.  That is always a must. These little rolls are a great snack, because you can for sure eat more than one, and that is okay.  Eat all of them.  All  you can eat veggies never hurt anyone.  Fresh crunchy veggies in a cool rice wrapper in a sauce?  Yes Please, and more while you are at it! This recipe is the perfect solution for a refreshing, healthy cool down snack or appetizer.  Dipped in a creamy ginger peanut butter sauce, and all is good in the world.  They are even a great idea for bikini season…load up on these puppies with zero guilt. ( Not that I ever have any guilt anyway).

Whisk the sauce ingredients together until combined well.
Heat a large skillet with hot water, and place the rice wrapper inside. Make sure it is fully submersed in the water, and remove when fully limp.
Place the vegetables in the wrapper horizontally. Fold right and left sides inward, and the bottom upward, then roll up like a burrito.
Cut them in half or eat em’ whole! Dip them in that amazing peanut butter sauce!
