Feasting with Friends! (...52)

Make your own spring rolls: a really easy, fresh, delicious, healthy, summery meal.  Also good for an appetizer to go along with your Memorial Day BBQ.  The food requires minimal cooking, some chopping, and lots of finger licking...the dipping sauce makes for messy eating. 

Spring Rolls
Use large lettuce leaves as a wrap for fixings. 
Pork, cut into strips and cooked
Carrots, made into ribbons with a peeler
Cucumber, peeled and cubed
Asparagus, steamed and cut into ¼” pieces
Avocado, cut into pieces

Peanut Dipping Sauce 
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons crushed peanuts
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon molasses
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

For a drink...homemade margaritas!
1 part orange
1 part lemon
1 part lime
1 tablespoon honey or agave
1 part Tequila (made with 100% agave), add as much as you like. 
Add lots and lots of ice and drink.
