TIPS: You don't need warm water in a bowl, make it easy for yourself. Hold the wrapper under the faucet for one second; Lay on a wet towel and assemble (the wrapper will soften up immediately) Be careful to buy the wrappers made of rice, don't buy the wrappers that look like white like flour or are made with flour - these are the wrong ones and are for making fried eggrolls. 99 Ranch Market has them in the Vietnamese section of their stores. You can add whatever ingredients you want, but using basil, mint, or cilantro are key to the unique taste of these rolls. Don't overstuff the roll, these are delicate, and much easier to roll when not over-filled especially if you want to use a dipping sauce. You don't want these looking like burritos! After wrapping, slice them in half on a diagonal slice (much prettier). Dipping sauce: I bought thick teriyaki sauce, added a "little" crunchy peanut butter, and thinly sliced green onions. Rolling the wrappers: Easy to do but takes practice, and you'll be an expert after a few tries. Take these to a party, and everyone will go ga-ga over them and think you're a genius.
