Serving the Summer Rolls - Summer Fresh, Crisp, and Flavorful!

If serving this dish at a party, try cutting the rolls into thirds or quarters, then setting them on a platter (see photo). This makes for a beautiful finger food or appetizer. Serve as is, or with a dipping sauce. For dipping sauces, see suggestions below:

Dipping Sauces:

  • For the simplest dipping sauce, serve with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce (available in the Asian section of most grocery stores, or at Asian food stores)
  • These rolls are also very good served with Hoisin Sauce (available at most grocery stores in the Asian section).
  • An easy Thai sauce is simply to combine equal parts soy sauce and fish sauce with fresh-cut red chilies. Add a squeeze of lime juice too.
  • If you prefer a sweeter, non-spicy sauce (especially if kids are involved), try this easy dip: Mix 3 Tbsp. plum sauce with 1 Tbsp. soy sauce.
  • Presonally, I prefer Summer Rolls with my: Easy Thai Peanut Sauce/Dip Recipe. Made with real peanuts (not peanut butter), this sauce is super-delicious and authentically Thai.

Make-Ahead Tip: Summer rolls can be made several hours ahead of time, then simply cover and refrigerate. Just before your guests arrive, cut and place them on a platter together with your chosen dipping sauce (which can also be prepared ahead of time). Enjoy!
