So spring is really taking its sweet time coming. Here in Atlanta, the weather keeps changing. One day is warm, next day it’s cold, next day it’s a winter advisory, next day it’s 75 degrees, next day it’s raining cats and dogs. Ahhhh!!! Pick a season!! So what do you do when your yearning for Spring? Well you eat something that reminds you of spring. For me, spring is light vibrant flavors that remind you of new life emerging through the bitter cold. Too much?? Maybe. Not so much cold here in the south, but you get what I’m saying. I love using fresh fruits and vegetables to bring out the essence of spring.
The best part of spring rolls is that they are so versatile. You can pretty much use any combination of fruits and vegetables you choose. My recipe calls for cucumber, carrots, mango, avocado, and sweet red pepper. They are a great healthy snack or meal. My daughter loves them in her school lunch. She makes them herself and she’s eight! So, yes! They are super easy to make as well. Let’s get started!
