serves 3-4

fresh lettuce, chopped
2 medium tomatoes (seeded and sliced 1/4" thick)
6 pieces of bacon, fried
fresh basil, mint or other herbs
rice paper

In large bowl, fill it with water and make it warm by adding hot water. Gently dip each rice paper wrapper in warm water for a few seconds till damp. Don't over soak the rice paper. Place rice paper on plate, or working surface. As rice paper begins to absorb the water and become more soft and pliable, begin to add the fillings.

On the 1/3 section of the rice paper wrapper closest to you, start layering your fillings of lettuce, tomatoes and bacon. You can just have 1 bacon per spring roll but if you want to make it extra flavorful and decadent, add 2 slices of bacon.

Start rolling the wrapper over the fillings away from you, tucking and rolling the wrapper with your fingers, making sure all the fillings remain right and round within the rice paper wrapper.

Serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap to eat a few hours later.
