Asian Cole Slaw Spring Rolls

This is the sort of recipe that comes about after spending a few days with my creative siblings. I was contemplating an Asian cole slaw for this month’s Salad Bar “Potluck” Party…and that’s when my youngest sister, Maddy, suggested incorporating my salad into spring rolls.

And no ordinary spring rolls…these were to have edible flowers perfectly positioned for presentation’s sake. This idea was offered by the sister with the green thumb, huge garden and artistic flair. Yikes. Putting together these Asian Cole Slaw Spring Rolls would be more challenging than I anticipated.

Tips if You’re New to Making Spring Rolls

Thank goodness this newbie spring roll roller had a plethora of rice papers for practice. Did you know they dissolve if you soak them too long? I didn’t. Did you know you can remove the filling and start over with a new wrap? Now I do. This Asian coleslaw was amazing. I suggest you just make a double batch and shovel it in with a fork. If you’re overly ambitious, or a spring roll aficionado, go for the whole shebang. They are gorgeous…and tasty. Did I mention tasty? Yessiree…perfect for your Summer Pot Luck…which happens to be this month’s Salad Bar theme.

I hope you have a picnic, BBQ or potluck to attend…so you can bring one of these marvelous summer salads featured by my fellow Salad Bar bloggers.

  27. Gorgeous pictures! I planned on making potstickers this week, but I may need to have a change of plans and make these spring rolls instead.

  28. I love the idea of putting coleslaw in spring rolls!

  29. Before I ever made these rice paper rolls I thought they’d be so easy to do. I too discovered that there’s a trick to soaking the rice paper, a trick to rolling them and a trick to getting those herbs to be highly visible. But they’re so delicious I keep persevering xx

  30. Very cool, Lizzy! I never made spring rolls. I need to try these!

  31. The first thing I noticed were the beautiful marigolds and then came your delicious and colorful spring rolls. I never knew they dissolve, that would’ve been something. But, you have nailed it and inspired us.

  32. Gorgeous looking spring rolls, I love how coleslaw can become Asian this way 😀

    Cheers
    CCU

  35. –Gorgeously presented, Liz. WOW.

  36. This looks yummy–I have little patience. I’m sure I would eat them without the wrappers. But they do look fun–all wrapped up with a flower in their hair! Fun, Fun.

  37. I have rice paper rolls in my bucket list, and these look so amazing! And I don´t understand why on earth I´ve been meaning to make a dressing with peanut butter, like this one, and haven´t yet… It will get done this week, no doubt! Love how your did it with your sisters.

  38. These are gorgeous Liz! Enjoy your break, I’ll be doing the same.
