Fresh Salad Rolls with a Creamy Peanut Hoisin Sauce

20 min



Rice paper rolls are one of my favourite summer meals. They don't require an oven or a stove, and they are so crisp and refreshing to eat. You can pack them with all kinds of vegetables and noodles to help soak up all your delicious sauce.

Salad rolls

  • 1.8 oz (50 g)
    dry white vermicelli noodles
  • ½ cup (70 g)
    frozen shelled edamame
  • 6
    rice paper sheets
  • 1
    avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2
    red bell peppers, julienned
  • 1
    carrot, julienned
  • 1 cup (70 g)
    shredded red cabbage
  • ½
    cucumber, seeds removed, thinly sliced

Peanut sauce

  • ¼ cup (60 mL)
    peanut butter
  • ¼ cup (60 mL)
    hoisin sauce
  • ½
    lime, juiced

Optional toppings

  • sweet chili sauce
  • toasted sesame seeds


  1. Add the rice noodles and edamame into separate bowls. Pour plenty of boiling water over each. Set aside for 5 minutes, then drain.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the peanut butter, hoisin sauce, and lime juice in a small bowl and whisk. Then add small splashes of water, 1 tsp (5 mL) at a time, and continue until you achieve your desired consistency.
  3. In a large shallow dish, soak 1 sheet of rice paper in warm water* for about 5 - 7 seconds. The rice paper will continue to soften even after removed from the water. Do not over-soak, otherwise the rice paper will likely break when rolled.
  4. Let the excess water drip off the paper, then transfer the sheet to a large plate. In a line across the centre, add some of the drained rice noodles, edamame, avocado, and veggies.
  5. Wrap the salad roll like you would a burrito: folding in the sides, then tucking and rolling. Cut in half using a sharp knife**.
  6. Serve the rolls with the peanut sauce or with a sweet chili sauce, and enjoy!


  • * It's better that the water be a bit cooler rather than too warm.
  • ** It can help to lightly brush each side of the knife in just a little bit of oil, so that the rice paper and noodles don't stick to the knife.


  • Store in an airtight container lined with a damp paper towel or cloth in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Great one, perfect for a hot day! :)

Tamara - Aug. 13, 2022, 7:37 p.m.

Finally got round to make this! 😊

Found the paper in one of our usual supermarkets and today I decided to give it a go before going to Spain.

Put some twist to the recipe tho 🤭: brown rice, lettuce, cucumber, avocado, red pepper, carrot, edamame beans and mixed it all with vegan alioli (a sort of Spanish type of garlic mayo). Took some time to learn how to make the little sachets, but all in all they looked good and, best of all, were really yummy! 🤤 I hope to be able to make them for my family if I find the paper there.

I'm discovering new flavours (I love avocado now), new ideas to prepare food and new recipes (peppermint mocha is one of my favourites now). And it's all because of PUL. 🤗💜 Thanks everyone for everything and to Sadia and Robin, CONGRATS! 🥳

Oh, Tamara, thank YOU for the glowing feedback and for taking the time to share your experience with it! It means so much 💛

These fresh spring rolls make the perfect picnic snack! And I'm obsessed with the peanut sauce.

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 9:41 p.m.

So thrilled to hear, Erica, thank you 🤗

I am planning to cook this over the weekend, but was curious in regards to the lack of any spices in this recipe... as I have never had rice paper before, was wondering, would adding a few spices like salt and black pepper ruin its integrity, or the taste of other elements in the recipe?

PUL Team - April 11, 2022, 4:23 p.m.

Hey Priti, the sauce for this one is quite flavourful so we opted to limit spices to let the sauce shine. You're welcome to add spices if desired though! It may impact the taste depending on how much you add but shouldn't impact the integrity 😊

Laura - Feb. 14, 2022, 6:43 p.m.

It is soo nice! In love with the sauce! ❤️

Catherine J. Smith - Oct. 12, 2021, 8:33 a.m.

I love it, it's very crunchy and the peanut sauce made it so yummy.

Cath - Sept. 15, 2021, 3:32 p.m.

I can't recommend these rolls enough! They are so filling, especially with the delicious peanut butter sauce <3 And, they are perfect picnic finger food ;)

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2021, 5:14 p.m.

Lovely idea to bring them to picnics! Thanks for sharing the review, Cath 🙂

Easy and delicious meal, which doesn't feel too heavy in the stomach but will still make you feel satisfied ! Definitely make the sauce, it tastes heavenly on its own but also with the raw veggies !! ☺

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2021, 1:28 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Clara, thanks a bunch!

I would really love if you were able to add the approximate calories for your recipes. For people trying to contain how much calories they're eating this could be helpful. Also this looks beautiful!

Amazing! So tasty. I added red chili paste to the sauce and it sent it over the top- very delicious!

Charlotte - Aug. 7, 2021, 10:57 p.m.

I have been making this recipe so much this summer as the rolls are so fresh and tasty as well as fun to make. From my experience last year, I have now learnt which is the best rice paper to buy as the first type I tried easily ripped. I also now add some iceberg lettuce for an extra layer of crunch in the rolls which I really like. The peanut hoisin sauce is the highlight!

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 10:23 p.m.

We appreciate this so much more than words can describe, Charlotte! Love the lettuce for extra crunch 🤩

Rebecca - July 27, 2021, 12:10 a.m.

This recipe is so good! It took me a few tries to get the rolling but I figured it out. I found out it’s easier not to overstuff the rolls with veggies.

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 4:18 a.m.

A lovely tip, Rebecca! So happy the salad rolls were enjoyed ☺️

Maria - July 13, 2021, 1:08 p.m.

I absolutely love this sauce recipe specifically. I always tend to modify what is in the summer rolls based on the vegetables I have in my fridge, but I jar this sauce and just use it for the week to make them because I find it so tasty! It truly just elevates the summer roll and makes it much more filling. I sometimes leave out the noodles in this, sometimes I add tofu. Play with what is in the roll and it's like a new meal each week but the sauce is PERFECTION

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 12:58 a.m.

Such an incredible review, Maria, thank YOU! Love the idea of adding the sauce to noodles too 🤤

jonna - July 12, 2021, 3:08 a.m.

so so good, i make this recipe at least a few times a month! really tasty, and you can just tell how nutritious it is too, with all the vegetables

Lucy - July 11, 2021, 5:42 p.m.

we make these EVERY week in the summer!! so colorful, crunchy, fresh, and delicious. we love adding sriracha to the sauce 🤎

Manuela - July 9, 2021, 11:02 a.m.

Made these a few weeks ago, simply delicious!!!! Thank you for the recipe :)

Zoe - July 9, 2021, 1:11 a.m.

The sauce is addictive! So tasty and fresh for summer. Adding chopped cilantro and mint gives it a little extra something too!

PUL Team - July 12, 2021, 7:55 a.m.

Thank you for sharing, Zoe! 🤩

Marilynn - July 8, 2021, 10:56 p.m.

This was such a great easy summer recipe. My teenagers loved it too!

Géraldine - June 22, 2021, 8:58 p.m.

Hi Sadia, fresh, delicious and easy to make. And it can be repeatedly reinvented depending on the vegs available! I didn't have hoisin sauce so used soya sauce and a dash of honey instead.

PUL Team - June 24, 2021, 5:58 a.m.

We're so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Géraldine!

Sylvia - June 11, 2021, 8:30 p.m.

Sadia these are great, but…. How many rolls did you make before they looked as beautiful as they do on the picture!? 😂 I made about ten, and at number seven it came close to pic worthy food 😂

PUL Team - June 13, 2021, 12:05 a.m.

Thank you for the review, Sylvia 😃 Hehe recipe testing has the perk of added practice! A lovely reminder that in pictures we tend to see the enhanced versions that are perfectly plated, whereas in real life this isn't always the case🙂
