These look soooo good to me, I want to make them NOW! Will definitely be trying those this week, they look like the perfect summer bite!

You can fill them with anything--even chicken and shrimp, for those non-vegetarian. I love how well they keep, and how, once you chop everything up, you can keep making them for days!

Couldn't find rice paper at our market, which was not surprising but very disappointing. :-( I ended up making rice and stir fry to get over my Asian food craving. Will be on the hunt now for those papers. Kearney is not exactly the best place for finding groceries. It's pretty limited.

Do you have an Asian Market somewhere? You can find rice paper there for sure...you can also make summery wraps using lettuce leaves--Boston lettuce works best.
