It’s hard to believe that spring is around the corner and we can start looking forward to lazy outdoors eating while enjoying seemingly endless sunny days. These Pink Lady® Apple Summer Rolls are fresh and delicious, packed with loads of flavour making them one of those must make meals for the season ahead. Serve them at the start of a meal to get the taste buds going or as a summery light meal on their own.

You could even save yourself some time in the kitchen and place all the ingredients on the table and let each one make their own roll according to their own taste.

For these summer rolls, I used sliced Pink Lady® Apples to add extra fresh crunch and a slightly acidic sweetness and it works really well with all the other ingredients. Cooked and cooled prawns or finely shredded leftover roast chicken makes a great protein to add for something a bit more substantial. Added to that are some sliced cucumber, carrots, vermicelli noodles and fresh herbs, all encased in rice paper to make the most beautiful see through roll.

Rice paper is easy to work with and I love that you can see all the ingredients inside the rolls. The rice paper disks are available at most supermarkets and all you need to do is soak them in some cold water for about 20 seconds to soften. Fill them with the fillings of your choice, roll them up and they are ready to eat. You can keep them vegan, add some cheese for a vegetarian option or they are a great way to use up any meaty leftover.

You do need a dipping sauce or two and I think it needs to be a sauce that packs a big punch of flavour to elevate the eating experience. I used some Pink Lady® Apple juice to make an apple, soy and wasabi dipping sauce, a fiery peanut sauce and a rich salty-sweet barbecue sauce. Each of the sauce recipes should be more than enough for 10 rolls. If you make all of them there will be sauce left over. Use it for stir-fries or salad dressings later in the week.
