For this easy to make fresh spring roll recipe you will need the following ingredients:
– Lettuce (preferably two kinds for nice color and texture)
– Cucumber
– Vietnamese / thai Basil
– Mint
– Or any other herb you like
– Cooked rice noodles
– Cooked lean pork and cut in thin slices
– Cooked shrimp and cut in half
– Last but not least the rice paper rolls. The bigger you buy, the easier it will be to handle.

To make these fresh spring rolls, follow these steps:

Be sure to wash your hands first because you will be making these fresh spring rolls with your bare hands.

Make one side of a rice paper sheet wet with your hands. Stick a second rice paper sheet onto the first one, trying to align the sheets as precisely as possible. This is the trick the chef of LiefHotel Saigon told me which will guarantee you for success. Then, make this second sheet wet too.

Place two or three lettuce leafs with the hollow side up. Fill these leaves with a small hand full of rice noodles. Place your fresh veggies: some cucumber slices, carrot sticks, Thai/Vietnamese basil and mint on top.

Roll up the lettuce package first. Second, start rolling your fresh spring roll and stop about half way with rolling. Tuck the sides in and place two or three shrimp pieces in your fresh spring roll with the orange side down. Next to that, place the lean cooked pork on top, covering the shrimp. Roll tightly all the way to the end. Et voila, this is how you make your first Vietnamese fresh spring roll with success!
