I’ve always been intrigued about working with rice paper wraps and decided this would fun to try.  They turned out to be a very light and satisfying snack.  I swapped zucchini for the cucumber and had to forgo the avocado- I had a bad one.  I also added a bit of agave to the chili sauce to give a sweet addition to the spicy kick.
