Things To Grab

  • Whisk
  • Small bowl
  • Medium bowl
  • Shallow bowl

Directions

  1. Whisk together Italian-style marinade, chili paste, and peanut butter for dipping sauce; set aside.

  2. Combine lettuce, cabbage, mint, cilantro, cashews, basil, lime zest, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Fill a wide shallow bowl with warm water. Dip 1 rice paper into water for a few seconds or just until moistened. (Rice paper will still be firm but will continue to soften during assembly.) Place rice paper on a work surface.

  3. Build each roll by placing about 1/2 cup lettuce-cabbage mixture across lower third of the rice paper. Top with a few slices each bell pepper; add some cucumber and carrot. Fold bottom of rice paper over filling. Fold in sides and roll up tightly.

  4. Repeat with remaining rice papers and filling ingredients. Serve immediately with dipping sauce. Garnish dipping sauce with crushed red pepper, if desired.
