BLT Summer Rolls

BLT Summer Rolls with Avocado Dipping Sauce

I adore BLT and having them served in rice paper as rolls with a dipping sauce is so refreshing so give it a go

  • Avocado Dipping Sauce
  • ½ avocado
  • ¼ cup thickened creme or sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 4 mint leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

  • BLT Summer Rolls
  • 6 rice paper rounds
  • 12 baby romaine lettuce leaves*
  • 6 slices of cooked bacon
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and diced
  1. In the bowl of a food processor - add the avocado, thickened cream or sour cream, lemon juice, and mint. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Fill a large bowl with room temperature water. Working with one rice paper wrapper at a time, dip it into the water so the entire round is submerged. As soon as you have wet the entire round, remove it from the water and lay it on your work surface (the rice paper wrapper will be fairly stiff, but it will continue to soften as you work).
  3. Place a lettuce leaf in the center bottom ⅓ of the wrapper. Then top with the a slice of bacon, some diced tomato, and top with another lettuce leaf.
  4. Fold each side of the wrapper over the filling. Then roll up from the bottom, while using your fingers to compress the filling into the wrapper - roll tightly.
  5. Slice in half and serve with the avocado dipping sauce and enjoy!

2-Ingredient Dough Pizza

This amazing ans so easy to make

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F(200°C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix the self-rising flour and Greek yogurt until it comes together to form a ball.
  3. Transfer the dough ball to a lightly floured work surface and use your hands to begin flattening and shaping the rough into about a 12-inch (30 cm) round. If at any point the dough begins to stick, sprinkle on a bit more flour.
