Avocado Cabbage Rolls

There is nothing I love more than some good spring rolls! However, it is not always easy to have rice paper at your disposal. Tip: order it from Amazon and just keep it on hand because there is nothing better than a nice homemade spring roll when you have a craving. You can enjoy the pleasure of putting whatever you want in it and they are a total crowd pleaser for a dinner party appetizer… and if you are my like my husband it can be fun to make it the size of a small burrito :). Anyhow, I saw this recipe on Whole Living and thought it was a great way to still get the look, feel and taste of a spring roll but with a little more ease. It is a bit messier who cares about a mess when peanut sauce is involved, right?! Feel free to play around with the filling – I’m sure they would be awesome with the spring roll filling as well!
