Salad Summer Rolls

Salad summer rolls are a light and easy starter or sidedish on a nice warm late Summer day.

Thursdays is farmers market in my neighborhood. Inspired by the seasonal vegetables and my love for avocado and tempeh. So I made this light, vegan, low carb and gluten-free salad summer rolls. Enjoy, the beauty of the late Summer!

Fold up the sides of the salad and roll it carefully, like a rice paper of a summer roll. See following pictures.

You can also make a fast and easy salad roll version. When you don’t fold up the sides of the salad leaf and only roll them up, form the bottom to the top.

To fix the rolls, put the rolls on the open end of the roll.
