DIY Rice Paper Rolls

DIY Rice Paper Rolls

This is one of my  favourite dinners as I just love putting together a huge platter of goodies and having my friends and family sit around a table and go crazy making their own rice paper roll creations.

You can cut everything up in advance so you just have to pull the platter out of the fridge and dinner is ready to go.

These make a great option for dinner and are great for your work lunch the next day or even the kiddies lunchbox.
