What to make with spring rolls?

  • 9

I'm having some people over tomorrow and making vietnamese style spring rolls (some shrimp, some pork) and need something to go with. Any suggestions?

  1. like a dip? or like a main?

    fried rice!

    1. Maybe a nice curry dish with some rice - seem to recall some recent HC threads on Thai curries. I think of the spring rolls as an appetizer.

          yeah, i like having hefty spring rolls with dipping sauces as a main. but definitely need something to go with. thanks for these suggestions so far!

        2. my mom usually makes spring rolls bigger and heartier like you for a meal.
          she makes a hot & spicy soup like a thai soup or the vietnamese canh chua to sip on while eating the rolls. i think its the perfect compliment to the fresh, cold rolls.

          1. How about goi ga (cabbage salad w/chicken)? I know somebody posted a recipe for it a while back.

                We like goi ga as well, or papaya salad with beef jerky, sticky rice (yes, even with the spring rolls!) and fried green curry corn cakes, which are thai, but go nicely with Vietnamese spring rolls and salad. Table salad, peanut sauce, and sweet and spicy garlic chile sauce for wrapping everything.
