These vibrant and fresh summer rolls may look complicated to assemble, but with the right plan of action they come together in a snap. First of all, to set yourself up for success, be sure to have all your fillings laid out and ready to go once you start making the rolls. Secondly, we recommend soaking the rice paper wrappers for about 20 seconds; you want them pliable, but not completely soft. Lastly, once you have transferred the soaked wrappers to a cutting board, blot them gently with a paper towel. This step ensures better adhesion of the sauce and fillings, and helps the wrapper to stick to itself once rolled. Now go forth and start rolling!

2) While the pork cooks, stir hoisin sauce and peanut butter together in a small bowl; set aside.
3) Just before the pork has finished cooking, fill a shallow bowl or 9″ round cake pan with 1″ of warm water. Lay out cucumber, carrot, cabbage, basil, and mint leaves within close reach.
4) After the pork has finished cooking, remove from your Suvie and cut against the grain into 6 pieces.
5) Place one sheet of rice paper in the warm water and let rest for 20-30 seconds to soften. Transfer sheet to a cutting board and blot dry gently with a towel. Spread 1 tbsp peanut mixture over the bottom third of the sheet. Top with a piece of pork, cucumber, carrot, cabbage, and herbs, and lettuce.
Roll wrap up and over itself, starting from the bottom. Fold the edges into the center like a burrito and wrap up to close.
6) Repeat process with remaining ingredients. Stir 2 tsp warm water into remaining peanut sauce and serve on the side as dipping sauce.
