Spring roll skins are magical. Made of tapioca starch, rice starch, salt and water they look like thin plastic disks. But give them a brief, 30-second soak in tepid water and they become pliable and translucent. Look for spring roll skins in Asian markets; stored in the kitchen cabinet, they'll keep for months. These can be made up to 4 hours ahead. Once rolled, place on a lightly oiled platter, cover with dampened paper towels and plastic wrap and store at room temperature.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces thin noodles, broken in thirds (Asian or spaghettini)
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, 1/2 cup whole leaves, 1/2 cup chopped
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell peppers
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 2 Kirby cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced crosswise 
  • 1 carrot, peeled, quartered lengthwise and cut into thin strips
  • 1 carrot, peeled, quartered lengthwise and cut into thin strips 
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • Eight 8-inch spring roll skins

Directions

Cook the noodles until al dente in a pot of boiling water according to package directions, and then drain. 

Toss together the cilantro leaves, bell peppers, 1 tablespoon of the lime juice, the salt, carrots, cucumber and noodles in a large bowl. Stir together the peanut butter, honey, chopped cilantro, 3 tablespoons warm water and the remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice in a small bowl. 

Working with 1 spring roll skin at a time, soak it in a pan of tepid water until soft and pliable, about 30 seconds. Lift it out and place on a work surface. Spoon some of the noodle-vegetable mix onto the end of the spring roll skin closest to you. Roll it away from you once, enclosing the mixture, then fold the sides over the filling and roll the spring roll up. Repeat with the remaining spring roll skins and filling and serve with the peanut sauce.
