Salad Rolls

I hate raw vegetables, which is why I never eat them. They just don't look appetizing. Even the word "crudités" is unappetizing. But sometimes (like after a day of eating way too much fried chicken) my narrowing arteries beg for something fresh. My favorite (and only) way of eating raw vegetables is to make salad rolls.
You will need
For the rolls
- Red peppers
- Cilantro
- Mushrooms
- Cucumber
- Tomatoes
- Onions
(or whatever you like)
- Pork chops
- Shrimp
- Rice paper
- Rice noodles
1. Cut your vegetables lengthwise
2. Cook the Rice noodles and rinse with cold water
3. Grill the pork chops and cut into long slices
4. Grill the shrimp

Then for the sauce you will need
- juice from 1/2 lime
- 3 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tsp chopped jalapeno peppers
- 1/4 cup water
Add it all together in a little bowl and make it to taste
Serve the vegetables, and sauce with a hot bowl of water and rice paper
Dip the rice paper in the hot water to cook (takes only a few seconds) then lay it flat on your plate
Add your vegetables, pork, shrimp and noodles
Then roll. I like to fold the bottom edge over the toppings, roll once, fold the sides in, then roll again.
But as you can see, mine don't look that great, so don't listen to me. Once you have something that at least resembles a salad roll, dip it in the sauce and enjoy!
