Ingredients

  • 4 rice paper spring roll wrappers
  • 5 ounces Albacore tuna fish (I used Bumble BeeĀ® Sundried Tomato with Olive Oil)
  • 1/2 cup julienne cut carrots (I took a short cut and used prepackaged matchstick cut)
  • 1/4 seedless cucumber thinly sliced (skin on or off is your preference)
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach leaves or similar greens
  • 1 avocado pitted, peeled, and smashed

Instructions

  • Prepare a hard, clean, and dry work space in front of you. Prepare one Spring roll at a time before moving on to the next.
  • Placing your hands underneath for support, gently submerge a spring roll wrapper into a bowl of warm water, or through water from a faucet. Gently shake to remove excess water and lay the wrapper onto the work space.
  • Place 1/4 of each ingredient onto a wrapper, starting about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom, making sure to leave at least 1-2 inches unfilled from both sides of the wrapper.
  • Fold the bottom up and over the filling, then fold in both sides and continue rolling from the bottom up, using slight pressure to create a tight roll, but not too tight so as to tear the wrapper.
  • Serve with soy sauce, hot sauce, or an avocado-sour cream aioli (recipe in the notes section)
  • Well refrigerated, the Spring rolls should last about 4-5 days, but they're best eaten the day they're prepared.

Notes

For Optional Dipping Sauce - Avocado-Sour Cream Aioli:
Mix 1/2 cup smashed avocado or guacamole with 1/4 cup sour cream (you could also use mayonnaise, but the consistency will be thicker and the taste won't be as fresh and tangy).
