Spring Rolls in Summer

One of our guests this Shabbos was vegetarian, so I made a batch of spring rolls and hoisin sauce to go with them. They were an instant hit with everyone, not only our vegetarian friend! Here is the recipe.

These wonderful children made Spring roll appetizers for our closing ceremony. Thank you for the great recipes and memories!
