Casual Spring Rolls with Mint and a Peach Dipping Vinegar
MINT - this is the first recipe in the series collaboration with Sarah of Watershed Floral. To read our advice on cultivating and cooking with mint, visit the blog.
Okay, wait casual spring rolls? What does that even mean? Well, the truth is I threw in the word 'casual' because I never want anyone to think that certain dishes or "techniques" are off-limits to the average home cook. This recipe is one of my favorites because no matter what it feels special, but please don't be turned off by the wrapping and rolling - it doesn't have to be perfect, it just needs to be ready to dip! Just think of it like this.. spring rolls are a great way to pull fresh veggies and herbs together in a fun new way (read: without making a salad). Sign me up!
Why mint? Well, Sarah and I want to bring you recipes and information that help you understand that fresh herbs always elevate a dish. We want to empower you to understand herbs and use them on your own terms from here on out. I suggest you use mint in this recipe because it adds a really fun flavor, and will help you understand its savory applications for future use. But honestly, any of the fresh herbs from this series would be amazing. Just promise me no matter what you'll add fresh herbs.
