Summer Rolls

Vietnamese cuisine may just be the perfect kind of cooking for summer ― fresh and satisfying, but never heavy. And now that ingredients like rice-paper wrappers and rice noodles are increasingly available (look for them in the Asian food aisle of a well-stocked supermarket), it's easier than ever to make dishes like summer rolls at home.

These require nothing more than soaking the wrappers and prepping a few fillings, many of which can be picked up at the supermarket deli or salad bar. The real work ― and fun ― of filling and rolling shifts to the diners.
