Even though the days are getting shorter and the leaves are beginning to show signs of turning, I’m in denial; as far as I’m concerned it’s still okay for lake swimming, shorts-wearing and ice cream eating.

Summer rolls are my go-to when I feel like making something fresh and healthy to share around that doesn’t require cooking or loads of dishes. 
You can fill them with whatever vegetables and/or meats you like – some great additions are chicken, shrimp, lettuce, hoisin, radish, avocado, vermicelli noodles, mint, and cilantro.
 The satay sauce is perfect for camping; we just popped all the ingredients into what was left of the Almond Butter in the jar and took that camping with us.

12 rolls


Satay Sauce

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Juice of half a lemon or lime
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or aminos
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • teaspoon red chili flakes
  • Black pepper to taste

Spring Rolls

  • Rice paper wraps, about 12-16 medium sized
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup peanuts, almonds or cashews
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 mango
  • small red cabbage
  • 1 small cucumber
  • Pickled Ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely



  • Put all Satay ingredients into a jar and mix or shake to combine. Add a little water to desired sauce consistency. This will last in a jar in the fridge for a few days so you can make a batch and take what you need!


  • Lightly toast sesame seeds and nuts in a small pan over the campfire until starting to brown, remove quickly and let cool.
  • Chop carrots and cucumber into matchsticks, and thinly slice mango and red cabbage.
  • Soak rice wraps one at a time in lukewarm water until starting to soften, remove and lay on chopping board. Top with a couple of slices of each ingredient and a sprinkle of seeds, nuts, and pickled ginger. Fold in edges one at a time, rolling as you go to keep it tight.
 Pour satay sauce into a small bowl and use to dip your summer rolls into!

    Love this recipe! Do you think they would keep well if you made them ahead of time and kept them in the fridge (maybe with a wet paper towel?)? Either way- I’ll be making these soon~

    1. Fresh Off the Grid says:

      I’ve made summer rolls and stored them up to 24hrs in a Tupperware in the fridge before and they keep pretty well, but I’m not sure how/if they keep longer than that, since the wrapper is a bit delicate.
