Green Veggie Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce

While we still have asparagus popping up in the garden, I’ve been trying to use it in more recipes! I love summer rolls and these green veggie summer rolls are so satisfyingly crunchy and refreshing on a warm day! Pairing the summer rolls with peanut sauce with just the right amount of spice makes it absolutely perfect.

So last week I went out and picked some asparagus and chopped up some other fresh veggies I had in the fridge and rolled them up! I’ve made summer rolls for a few showers and parties in the past and they are always a hit. But making them on a random week day was such a treat! (My roommates thought so too! Ha!) I always think they’re going to be more difficult to make than they are even though I’ve made them a bunch of times. They’re honestly so easy – the longest part is just the chopping of the veggies! So if you love a nice easy, refreshing recipe that seems way more impressive than the effort required – this is for you!
