Spicy Summer Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

60 mins (prep 60)
14 ingredients
makes 6 servings (12 summer rolls)
We like to think of the summer roll as an elegant example of fast food: a salad packed into an edible container—in this case, paper-thin rice sheets—which results in something as beautiful to behold as it is practical to eat by hand. Better yet, the summer roll is a big win for the health-conscious because the roll is almost fat-free, and the sauce, while sporting a little peanut butter, is not highly caloric. One dipped bite yields an explosion of flavors and textures that's guaranteed to excite any palate. Editor's Note: This recipe is part of Gourmet's Modern Menu for Fiery Fare. Menu also includes Spicy Sweet-and-Sour Grilled Chicken and Chile-Ginger-Mint Jellies.
