pei wei's vietnamese salad rolls.

Pei Wei's Vietnamese Salad Rolls from Michelle:

I don't have measurements for any of this. I just eyeballed it. Think of it like a salad with the cabbage as the main ingredient and everything else as the mix-ins.

Rice Wrappers, King Soopers - Asian Aisle (also known as spring roll skins)
Green Leaf Lettuce (or Bib Lettuce)
Napa Cabbage, shredded
Green Onions, chopped
Mint, chopped
Carrots, cut into about 1" matchsticks
Chicken, diced (I used about 6 chicken tenders that had been drizzled with soy sauce, honey, garlic powder and red pepper flakes and then cooked through)
*Pei Wei's have rice noodles in them. I didn't like the consistency when I tried to prepare them, so I leave them out.

Lime Vinaigrette
2 T lime juice (about 1 lime)
1 1/2 tsp water
1 T sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 T oil
Combine everything but oil in a small jar and shake until sugar and salt are dissolved. Then add oil and shake well.

Peanut Dipping Sauce
2 T soy sauce
1 T rice wine vinegar
2 T brown sugar
4 T peanut butter
1 tsp chipotle Tabasco
1 tsp honey
1 tsp sweet chili sauce (Asian aisle)
1 tsp lime vinaigrette

Mix all salad ingredients except lettuce. Dip rice wrapper in warm water until soft (about 1 minute). Place wrapper on plate. Stack 2 pieces of lettuce in the center. Cover with a large handful of the salad mixture. Drizzle with lime vinaigrette. Then fold the two sides in and roll (like a burrito). Repeat until desired amount of rolls are made. Do not let rolls touch each other, they will stick. Dip in Peanut Sauce and/or Sweet Chili Sauce.
