Italian Rice Paper Rolls

What's she talking about?? Rice paper and Italian?  Screwed up lady here.  Weeellll, that's not so true.  Not after you've tried this delicious portable salad snack!  I had a bunch of Rice Wrappers from a workshop I held a few weeks ago, AND I had a bunch of lovely salad ingredients leftover from a more recent workshop, so I put them together to create this!

                              
                                

                                 
                                

This is the good stuff!  Kind of pricey, but the flavor and texture will rock your world.  It's imported Buffalo Mozzarella.  Good stuff, like I said.


Pretty simple process.  Dip the rice paper into warm water until soft.  Lay on a dry surface.  Place desired ingredients inside and wrap!  In there I've got some baby arugula, real buffalo mozzarella, some steamed and sliced beets, and a delicious olive oil and 15 year aged balsamic, which you can purchase at Old Town Oil if you're in the Chicago area.

                                 

Even Delilah was hankering for a bite.

I've never been a cheese person, but I have really been into it too. Maybe it's the weather, or the creamy deliciousness!
