Rolls can be served as whole rolls, cut in half or even cut in bite size pieces, like cut sushi. The garlic soy dipping sauce recipe will make about 1/2 cup dip. You can also use it as a fantastic marinade as well!
Fill a large bowl with warm water. Quickly dip each rice paper in warm water for about 2-3 seconds.
Place wet rice paper on a clean work surface.
Make sure rice paper is completely hydrated and softened before rolling.
Lay out the vegetables on rice paper and then roll.
Serve with garlic soy dipping sauce within 2 hours.
