Although spring rolls take time to prepare and make, the result is worthwhile... absolutely delicious. You will find vermicelli wrap (rice paper) at most Asian supermarkets. They break easily, but you will get a hang of it after a while. Just follow the instructions provide on the packaging. Try it!
